Falling short of majority after the Assembly polls, the Bharatiya Jananta Party has decided to fall back on its Hindutva roots.
Buoyed by the fact that the party was able to keep its core voters in the Assembly elections, the BJP has decided to go all out during the Lok Sabha polls next year, using the Hindutva plank and the popularity of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to woo voters.
Besides these factors, the party, which doesn't have any representative in the Lok Sabha from Delhi, will also woo voters with the promise of a corruption-free and pro-development agenda.
The Delhi BJP, which expects mid-term polls in the national capital, will over the coming months hold mass religious contact programmes to resurrect the Hindutva plank.
On the occasion of the birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the BJP plans to organise a recital of Sunderkand, one of the books in the Ramayan. Blankets will be distributed to the poor on the occasion.
The event will be attended by Nitin Gadkari, Dharmendra Pradhan, Vijay Goel, Vijendra Gupta and Ramesh Bidhuri.
A similar event will be organised on a grand scale in January, which is likely to be attended by several RSS leaders. Preparations for the event are being done on a large scale.
According to sources, the recital from the Ramayan will be projected on LED screens.
"The digitisation of the event is aimed at making youths aware of their roots. The entire event has been planned keeping youths in mind. We will not distribute copies of the Ramayan. The idea is to narrate the epic to youngsters in a modern and digital format. It will be organised at the Ramlila Maidan," the leader said.
