To retaliate the opposition’s recently held “sangharsh” campaign, the BJP Maharashtra is about to launch a ‘sanvad yatra’ from May 25 to reach out to the people, including farmers.
According to the state BJP chief Raosaheb Danve,the ‘sanvad yatra’ is going to be a 15-day-long tour of Maharashtra.
He said, “Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and I will start the yatra from two different locations so that we can cover a larger part of the state.”
He added, “We will meet farmers in their fields, hold discussions and also try to answer their queries about the state government’s schemes and provisions made for their benefit.”
All the MLAs and the elected representatives of BJP are notified to participate in the yatra in their respective areas.
“If we work hard today and establish a better communication with people, it will be easier for us in the next elections,” Danve said.
Last month in a press conference the state BJP chief said that the Opposition failed to reach out to the people through its ‘sangharsh yatra’.
“The people of this state are not responding to the sangharsh yatra as they have reposed their faith in us and they are expecting communication from our side,” he said.
“So, we are going to start a reaching-out campaign, wherein the party workers in the state will go to the people.
The said yatra of BJP aims to target of reaching out to 25 lakh farmers.
Fadnavis said, “As they (opposition) call their campaign a sangharsh yatra, we will call ours a sanvad yatra.”
Recently the Opposition Congress and NCP held the ‘sangharsh yatra’ to articulate harmony with farmers over their demand of loan waiver.
