Vishwakarma Scheme 2023: BJP’s Mega Plan to Empower OBC Community in Assembly and Lok Sabha Elections
In a strategic move aimed at empowering the OBC (Other Backward Classes) community in the upcoming assembly and Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is gearing up with a mega plan under the Vishwakarma Scheme. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to hold a crucial meeting with the BJP’s OBC Morcha today (Monday), signaling the party’s commitment to garner OBC support. Recent caste-based surveys conducted in Bihar have revealed a substantial OBC population, making it a significant voter base in states where elections are scheduled.
The Vishwakarma Scheme Meeting
The BJP’s central leadership is convening an important meeting at its headquarters extension to discuss the ambitious Vishwakarma Scheme. Several party leaders, including the BJP OBC Morcha leaders and central ministers, are expected to participate. The party is formulating an extensive strategy to woo OBC voters in the upcoming assembly and 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Amit Shah to Outline Scheme Benefits
Notably, Home Minister Amit Shah will also be present at the meeting to elucidate the benefits of the Vishwakarma Scheme. It is believed that if the BJP succeeds in winning the support of OBC voters, it could translate into significant advantages in both state and national elections.
When Will the Assembly Elections Take Place?
It is anticipated that the Election Commission will announce the dates for assembly elections in five states today. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, and Mizoram are set to witness assembly elections. According to sources, these elections may be conducted in November and December, possibly in 1-2 phases in each of these states.
The Election Commission has already made preparations for elections in these five states. Chhattisgarh is likely to witness elections in two phases, while Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan, and Telangana may see voting take place in a single phase. The voting process is expected to be conducted in separate phases in November and December.
In conclusion, the BJP’s concerted effort to engage with the OBC community through the Vishwakarma Scheme demonstrates the party’s recognition of the significance of this voter base in the upcoming elections. The party’s strategy and outreach efforts will likely shape the political landscape in these states, influencing the outcome of both assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
