With the Delhi Assembly Elections only a couple of months away, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has formed several committees to reach out to voters in the National Capital.

Sources have told The Times of India that 19 such committees have been formed keeping in mind Delhi’s demography and socio-economic sections. These committees will be headed by senior leaders of BJP’s Delhi unit and all seven Members of Parliament from the capital city.

A senior party leader told the newspaper that the committees have been tasked to complete the outreach programme within four weeks.

The work has been allocated by BJP National Secretary (Organisation) BL Santosh, who has already met leaders from the party’s Delhi unit twice in the last few weeks. He is likely to hold a review meeting soon.
