Lucknow, Dec 22: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address booth workers of Bharatiya Janata Partu (BJP) during his visit to Varanasi on Thursday. The PM who will address around 32,000 booth workers of the BJP will also have lunch with them. More over, according to party sources, reported by The Indian Express, the PM will be handed over a list of all the names of the booth worker and all he has to do is randomly select a few names and then talk with them regarding organisational activities.
According to the The Indian Express report, a senior BJP member was quoted saying, “It will not be possible for the PM to speak to all booth workers. It is expected that he will address them… He could interact with a few workers regarding party organisational works and people’s response on Centre’s decision to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.”
All 32,000 booth workers from the 1,700 booths have been asked to assemble by 10 am, as per regional media-in-charge, BJP Kashi region, Sanjay Bharadwaj. The IE report also states that the members have been asked to get home-cooked lunch, reportedly poori and sabji in a transparent carry bag .
However, this is Modi’s first organisational meeting in his constituency. All booths fall in five assembly segments- Varanasi North, Varanasi South, Varanasi Cantonment, Sevapuri and Rohaniya.
Named as ‘lunch pe charcha’ (talk over lunch), during the interaction, PM Modi will eat on stage, while workers will eat while sitting on their chairs in ground. Sanjay Bharadwaj added that Modi will perhaps be the first Prime Minister to interact with the booth workers of his constituencies and is hoping it will send a positive message while at the same time raising the morale of party workers. This Bharadwaj hope will be an example for other MPs as well.
Following the interaction with the booth workers, according to IE, the PM is likely to inaugurate Trade Facilitation Centre and Crafts Museum for weavers in Bada Lalpur area. He is also expected to attend National Cultural Fest at Banaras Hindu University (BHU).
