The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday launched the “Mera parivar, Bhajapa parivar” (‘My family, BJP family’) campaign ahead of the Lok Sabha elections to bolster its base at the grassroots level.
Top BJP leaders, led by president Amit Shah, hoisted the party flag at their homes in support of the campaign. Many prominent leaders posted photos online to show their commitment to the party and encourage supporters.
BJP president Amit Shah, who was the first to hoist the flag, said, “This BJP flag is a symbol of development, belief and nationalism, and shows how appeasement, casteism and family rule is ending in the (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi era.”
Shah put up the saffron-and-green flag containing the party’s lotus symbol at his home in Gujarat.
