Millennium Post - - Mp Nation -

SHIMLA: It's brand Modi at work in Hi­machal Pradesh once again ahead of the Lok Sabha poll. Mon­day will be spe­cial day for Chief Min­is­ter Jai Ram Thakur, who will lead his min­is­ters, MLAS and around 13 lakh party mem­bers –both on­line and off-line, to cre­ate a record of sorts to raise party do­na­tions through NAMO App.

“Chief Min­is­ter, min­is­ters and MLAS will use Modi App (NAMO) to do­nate any­thing be­tween Rs 5 to Rs 1,000 at one time and one place to make do­na­tions for the party. We want to cre­ate a record of sorts, not in terms of money/do­na­tions in a sin­gle day, but num­ber of party work­ers in­clud­ing Chief Min­is­ter, min­is­ters and MLAS us­ing the App on Fe­bru­ary 11,” state BJP pres­i­dent Sat­pal Satti told the Mil­len­nium Post .

Ear­lier, the BJP wrapped up a three-day long meet­ing for pre­par­ing a party road map to the polls on Sun­day.

Chief Min­is­ter Jai Ram Thakur, for­mer Chief Min­is­ter Prem Ku­mar Dhu­mal, MP Viren­der Kashyap, apart from min­is­ters and MLAS, who are in Shimla for bud­get ses­sion of the as­sem­bly, at­tended the meet­ing dur­ing the day.

As par party's de­ci­sion, Fe­bru­ary 11 has been cho­sen as be­ing birth an­niver­sary of Pan­dit Deen Dayal Upad­haya as be­ing ob­served as “Sankalp Di­vas”. All party work­ers have been told al­ready to down­load NAMO App that has a spe­cial fea­ture for mak­ing mi­cro-do­na­tions. Those who fail to make do­na­tions on­line or through App can send the cheque, in­forms Praveen Sharma, Party's me­dia head.

Those mak­ing do­na­tions through the App will be some sur­prised as they have a chance to meet Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi and also win mer­chan­dise like NAMO T-shirts, stick­ers, badges, fridge mag­nets, caps, pens,note­books and mugs.

Not alone this, the BJP on Sun­day de­cided to launch two new pro­grammes from Fe­bru­ary 12 (Tues­day) to dis­play a BJP flag at house of each party work­ers un­der drive “Mera Ghar, BJP Pari­war”. This drive will con­tinue till March 2.

“Since most of the Min­is­ters and MLAS are cur­rently in Shimla and live in govern­ment houses, they will chose party work­ers' house and will go there to per­form the “jhanda” cer­e­mony. Chief Min­is­ter will also do the same fol­lowed by MLAS and min­is­ters in se­lect mu­nic­i­pal wards of Shimla town,” said Satti.

More than seven lakh flags will be pitched in the state dur­ing the drive.
