NEW DELHI, May 13, 2024—Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Shri Devender Yadav said that Delhi  Congress’ campaign  for the Lok Sabha elections has reached a crescendo with the Congress workers and leaders  mounting an aggressive outreach programme to cover all sections of people as the party was sparing no effort to win all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi with thumping margins, in association with India Alliance.

Addressing a press conference at the DPCC office, Rajiv Bhawan, here today about Congress roadmap for the preparations of the Lok Sabha elections, Shri Devender Yadav said that  Congress and India Alliance workers have been campaigning with complete coordination and understanding to reach out to people across Delhi, and popularize the Congress pledges among the people as the party was looking towards a clean sweep of all the seven Lok Sabha seats. He said that  this time, the BJP will be ousted from all their seven sitting seats by inflicting them crushing defeats.

Besides Shri Devender Yadav, others present at the press conference were former DPCC president and Chairman of the Election Management Committee and Co-ordination Committee Shri Subhash Chopra, Chairman of the Media Campaign Strategic Committee and former Delhi Minister Shri Haroon Yusuf, former DPCC president Ch. Anil Kumar, Chairman of the Communications Department and ex-MLA Shri Anil Bhardwaj, AICC spokesperson Smt. Ragini Nayak, secretary Amrita Dhawan, Ali Mehndi, Jitendra Bhagel, Booth Committee chairman Rajesh Garg and Shivam Bhagat, Rahul Sharma and Hidayatullah.

Shri Devender Yadav said that polling booths are the backbones of every political party, and Delhi Congress has taken every effort to strengthen polling booths so that the Lok Sabha election could be fought with all our might. He said that BLAs (Booth Level Agents) are being trained in booth management and election day management in each of Delhi’s 13630 polling booths to ensure that all the 1 crore 47  lakh voters came out caste their votes, and elect the Congress and India Alliance candidates with overwhelming margins. He said that Delhi Congress Control Room has formed separate teams to give training to BLAs, and the process will be completed in all the Assembly segments in the next 5 days, so that Congress booth managers will be fully equipped to meet all the possible situations before, during and after the Lok Sabha polling. He said that Congress workers have been identified, shortlisted and screened before giving them training in booth management. He said that the DPCC Control Room has formed a team of  15 volunteers each in all the three Lok Sabha constituencies to identify and scrutinize BLAs for booth management training, and oversee their activities in publicising Congress’ 5 Nyay and 25 guarantees among the people, and distribute the Guarantee Cards door-to-door. He said that a group of 3-3 social media and media teams have been constituted to scrutinize the media activities of every party in the Lok Sabha constituencies. He said that the Co-ordination Committee and the Control Room have been working with complete synergy, and a call centre has also been setup with teams of 70-70 volunteers for each of the Lok Sabha constituencies, which will provide all the relevant information about the functioning of the booth committees, and other relevant information happening in every Lok Sabha constituency in association with India Alliance.

Shri Devender Yadav said that 10 teams have been giving training at the booth-level in booth-management. He said that  the training sessions of BLAs will be  completed in the three Lok Sabha constituencies where Congress has fielded its own candidates in association with India Alliance, and after that training of BLAs will be completed in the other four Lok Sabha constituencies and this process will be completed in the next 5-7 days, with the DPCC president  monitoring this exercise.

Shri Devender Yadav said that narrative building for every election was an important process, but PM Modi and the BJP have taken it to an extreme level by attacking particular groups and communities with invectives instead of talking about the struggles of people on account of  price rise, unemployment, atrocities on women, plight of the poor, etc, to cover up the Modi Government’s failures in the past 10 years. He said that the Congress manifesto specifically deals with the problems being faced by youth, women, farmers, labour, middle class and the poor and the underprivileged to create a positive narrative, and Congress workers will popularize the 5 Nyay and 25 Guarantees in the Congress manifesto door-to-door, and this exercise has gained great momentum after the Lok Sabha election campaign bugle was sounded by Congress president Shri Mallikarjun Kharge at a huge public meeting at Ghonda, in the North East Delhi Parliamentary constituency. He said that the Congress workers have been visiting door-to-door to distribute the Congress guarantee cards.

Shri Devender Yadav said that Delhi Congress will organize “Town Hall” in the coming days to discuss the issues facing the people threadbare like price rise, unemployment, GST, rehri-patri vendors, pollution, women’s safety and security, law and order, JJ clusters, resettlement and unauthorized colonies, ownership rights to the poor in every Lok Sabha constituency and to find solutions. He said that Shri Rahul Gandhi has agreed to address one of the Town Hall meetings. He said that the social media will adopt novel publicity methods to take the messages of Congress and India Alliance to people across the Capital. He said that Congress will also organize road shows, corner meetings and public meetings for the Lok Sabha elections to create great momentum in the election campaigns.

Shri Devender Yadav said that India was a young country with youth power, but due to the destructive policies of the BJP, the youth of the country have been rendered jobless, forcing them to lead an aimless life, but the Congress has made schemes to ensure a bright future for the youth.  He said that Congress workers have been particularly targeting first time voters who have crossed 18 years of age, and looking askance at their uncertain future due to the wrong policies of the BJP. He said that the Congress promises in the manifesto will give them sure assurance of a bright future if they vote for Congress and India Alliance candidates, with the campaign of “first vote of first-time voters to the  Congress”, to divert them from the politics of hatred of the BJP.

Shri Devender Yadav said that media was the Fourth Pillar of Democracy, which plays a vital role to protect democracy, but PM Modi did not appoint a single press conference in the past 10 years to take the questions from the media, but the top  Congress leaders have been regularly interacting with the people to keep the democratic traditional alive, and take the party’s messages, programmes and policies to the public without any ambiguity, on every issue affecting the people, but Modiji has been keeping a stony silence on the issues affecting the people like price rise, unemployment, women’s safety and security etc.
