news

Gujarat BJP will add 50 lakh more members during membership drive starting from next month. State BJP president Jitu Vaghani has said that the party’s state unit wants to increase its membership by 50 per cent against the target of 20 per cent set by the central leadership.

Talking to media persons at Gandhinagar, Mr Vaghani said that membership drive would start on 6th July, the birth anniversary of Syama Prasad Mookherjee- the founder of Jan Sangh and end on 11th August.

He said that the central leadership has set a target of increasing members by 20 per cent. But since the Gujarat unit is known for setting new benchmarks, we have decided to add 50 per cent more members to our existing 1.13 crore primary members in Gujarat.

AIR Ahmedabad correspondent reports that state unit vice president Mr Bhargav Bhatt and former minister of state for Home Rajnibhai Patel have been made in-charge of party’s membership drive.

The party has declared a phone number 8980808080 for the missed call to register as party’s member. A link will be sent to the caller to fill up the details. (AIR NEWS)
