The tour is quite like the “Vistarak tour” undertaken by Mr. Nadda’s predecessor and Union Home Minister Amit Shah when the latter was party president. Mr. Shah had concentrated on 130 where the BJP had come second or never won polls and in 2019 it was found that the party had won in 80 of those seats.
BJP general secretary Arun Singh told reporters that Mr. Nadda will begin his travel from the first week of December and Uttarakhand will be the first state on his itinerary. December 5 is the likely date for the start of his tour.
Mr. Singh said Mr. Nadda would be visiting every state, hold virtual meetings with heads of all booth units, the smallest organisational entity in the party, and meet every MP and MLA of the organisation besides its senior leaders, including district chiefs, in each state. Mr Nadda will visit some booths to interact with ground workers, he added.
During the travel, he will also strategise with party leaders for strengthening the organisation in Lok Sabha seats and regions where the BJP did not win in the 2019 polls, he said.
With Assembly polls in four states, West Bengal, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Assam, set to be held in the first half of the next year, he will also review the party’s preparedness for the elections, Mr Singh said.
Mr. Nadda will spend an average of three days in big states and two in others.
BJP-ruled states will give presentation to Nadda on various aspects of their work, including implementation of the central government schemes and on to how to further raise awareness about them.
He will also be meeting allies of the BJP allies and hold public programmes and press conferences as well, Mr. Singh said.
