New Delhi: With the mon­soon ses­sion of Par­lia ment endi ng last week, BJP MPs will now un­der­take ‘sankalp ya­tras’ in their re­spec­tive con­stituen­cies and des­ig­nated dis­tricts to ed­u­cate peo­ple about the pro­grammes of the Naren­dra Modi gov­ern­ment, en­cour­ag­ing them to take a pledge to co­op­er­ate in ful­fill­ing the aims set for form­ing a new In­dia by 2022.

The MPs will ad­min­is­ter oath to peo­ple to do their bit to make these pro­grammes a suc­cess,” a BJP leader said.

Modi had di­vided re­cent his­tory into phases — from 1857 to 1942, from Quit In­dia Move­ment in 1942 to free­dom in 1947, from free­dom to the present, and from 2017 to 2022 when In­dia will com­plete 75 years since In­de­pen­dence.

BJP lead­ers are al­ready in the midst of the an­nual Tiranga Ya­tra that be­gan on Au­gust 9 and will end on Au­gust 15. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in one such event, Union law min­is­ter Ravi Shankar Prasad said: “I took a pledge for a new In­dia. Let us pledge to build a new In­dia by 2022,” he said, adding: “The en­tire na­tion sup­ported Quit In­dia Move­ment in 1942 and Bri­tish­ers left In­dia. On the 75th an­niver­sary of the Quit In­dia Move­ment, I pledge that by 2022 we will build a new In­dia which will be free from cor­rup­tion, ter­ror­ism, com­mu­nal­ism and poverty.”

BJP was in the process of fi­nal­is­ing the sched­ule of its lead­ers and Union min­is­ters for the Sankalp Ya­tra, sources said. The pledge for a new In­dia is also likely to fig­ure in Modi’s In­de­pen­dence Day speech at the Red Fort.
