Last Sunday after the BJP national executive meeting which was held in Hyderabad, the central government announced a massive outreach programme for Pasmanda Muslims after the upcoming Monsoon session of Parliament. This development may turn out to be a cause of fresh worry for the Opposition parties, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Where the Muslim community largely votes against the saffron party.
Swatantra Dev Singh, Uttar Pradesh state president presented a report on BJP’s recently astonishing win in the Azamgarh and Rampur bypolls at the party’s national executive meeting in which PM Modi made a brief intervened and said to focus on Pasmanda Muslims and their upliftment.
Not only that Modi urged with the BJP workers to undertake ‘Sneh Yatras’ to cover the gap between the party and the people from different communities especially Pasmanda Muslims.
He also highlighted that it’s needful to convince the electorate that BJP is pro-people and pro-development. Meanwhile he advised the BJP workers to work on new social equations and work towards their upliftment.
According to the reports, the program has been launched to reach out to people who are not traditional voters of BJP, to fill the gap BJP also appointed Danish Ansari- a Pasmanda Muslim as the Minority Affairs Minister.
According to the sources, the main purpose of this program is to reach out to this community and understand from them about their concerns and also analyse why they choose to vote for the BJP in the recently concluded by-elections even if they have not traditionally been BJP’s vote bank.
