150 families in each segment to get book
26th June, 2021 – Jalandhar: Having inducted some Sikh leaders into the party recently, the BJP has started yet another campaign in the state to woo prominent Sikh families ahead of the Assembly polls.
The party has issued 150 sets of books for each constituency titled “PM Modi and his government’s special relationship with Sikhs”, which were printed by the I&B Ministry in November.
BJP leaders have been told to frame a list of 150 prominent Sikh families for each Assembly segment. The party leaders will personally visit them to hand over the books and get a picture clicked with them. These pictures are to be uploaded on the social media for wider circulation and to spread the message to negate the effect of ongoing “kisan andolan” against the party.
BJP Jalandhar district rural president Amarjit Singh Amri yesterday posted a photo of him gifting the book to Satbir Singh, an international hockey player. He said the list was being prepared and the move would carry the message of the PM and his government to many households.
Ex-CPS KD Bhandari, who was earlier known to be annoyed with the party leadership over the “kisan andolan”, said: “I have received 150 books for distribution among some noted Sikh faces in Jalandhar north constituency.”
The book carries the matter related to the role of the Congress in 1984 riots, Kartarpur corridor developed during Modi’s tenure and celebrations of 550 years of Parkash Purb of Guru Nanak. In some of the pictures carried in the book, Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Badal is also seen with Modi.
