Focus on Community Outreach, Expose Cong: Nadda’s Mantra at BJP’s Manthan

BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) chief JP Nadda’s eight-hour meeting with SC (Scheduled Caste) community leaders, including MPs and morcha post-holders, at the party headquarters on Tuesday, focused on what can be done to improve acceptance within the community.

The party leaders have been given the task of picking one welfare scheme and explaining how the Centre has extended the benefits to them.

According to the sources, the party leaders were also asked to talk about how Congress has insulted the community’s biggest leader, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.

JP Nadda also asked the leaders to connect with the community and focus on the Dalit leaders.

Sources stated that Nadda asked party leaders to work on the shortcomings in establishing connections.

A senior MP from the community who attended the meeting said it was a two-way communication where each attendee gave suggestions to strengthen ties with the community.

The exercise holds significance in light of the upcoming assembly elections in various states and also ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

While the opening address was given by JP Nadda, the closing remarks came from the national general secretary organization BL Santhosh.

The leaders stated that the exercise will be undertaken under SC Morcha’s supervision.

With states like Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, and later Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh, all having a substantial population of SC community, slated to go to polls either by the end of this year or the coming year, the exercise is vital to the party.

The Congress, at its recent Chintan Shivir, has decided to give 50% representation to the candidates belonging to SC/ST/OBC, and minorities.
