BL Santosh with party leaders and spokespersons

After the dismal performance in UP in the Lok Sabha elections, the churning period has now begun. On Sunday, organization general secretary BL Santosh also held a meeting with the party spokesperson in Lucknow. The meeting was discussing the election demonstration when the BJP spokesperson raised the issue of Agniveer. The spokesperson said that we are not able to respond on Agniveer. This issue has become a thorn in our neck. When the topic of discussion was Agniveer, I refused two or three times making excuses. The surprise came when the spokesperson demanded that the scheme be discontinued.

When the BJP spokesperson said this in the meeting, there was silence in the hall. All the leaders started looking at each other. Nobody understood anything. On the other hand BL Santosh, General Secretary of the Central Organization kept making some notes in the diary. The meeting of UP BJP spokespersons lasted for an hour. BL Santhosh convened this meeting. This was his last visit during his two-day visit to Lucknow.

BL Santosh wanted to talk about the next agenda

BL Santhosh wanted to call all the BJP spokespersons to talk about the agenda ahead, but many spokesmen began to post-mortem the party’s poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls. An MP who was a spokesperson raised the issue of Dalits moving away from the BJP. He said that apart from Mayawati, a large section of Dalits supported the BJP. He got votes in 2014 and 2019 elections. Dalit community voted in the last two assembly elections too, but this time what happened is that we did not get votes.

The spokesperson who said this was once a leader close to Mayawati. He was a Rajya Sabha MP in the BSP, but is now the party’s state spokesperson. He said that Dalits feel that they are being ignored. Alienation from Dalits could prove fatal for the party. It was then explained to him that the meeting should discuss how the spokesperson could do his job better.

Emphasis on better presentation of government work

The meeting with the BJP spokesperson emphasized how to present the government’s performance better, and also discussed how to counter the opposition’s statement. All the spokespersons admitted that they could not respond to the constitution and the campaign to abolish reservations. Meanwhile, party spokesperson Alok Verma raised the issue of youth problems.

The issue of unemployment also came up

He said that the youth is slowly turning against us. Unemployment is a big problem. We have to do something for government jobs and employment. BL Santhosh continued to record the views of all the spokespersons. BJP state president Bhupendra Chaudhary and organization general secretary Dharampal Singh were also present in this meeting.
