Itanagar: In the run-up to the 2019 general elections, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has announced that it will hold a massive video conference from the mountain town of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh on January 17, through which BJYM national president Poonam Mahajan will address more than 50,000 youth volunteers from over 200 locations across the country.
Mahajan will address the youngsters along with Arunachal chief minister Pema Khandu.
Both the leaders took to Twitter to express their excitement for the video conference:
This is said to be the largest-ever youth outreach programme done by any political party through the use of technology. The programme will also be telecast on various social media platforms.
Around 20 locations have been identified for the two-way interactions, which include Leh in Jammu & Kashmir, Wagah in Punjab, Kutch in Gujarat, Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, Darjeeling in West Bengal, Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, Bastar in Chhattisgarh, among others. The young volunteers will be able to interact and put questions to the BJYM national president.
With the saffron party eyeing the youth votes, Mahajan will reportedly discuss and highlight the various policy initiatives of the Modi government, while making an appeal for voting the BJP back to power in the upcoming elections, during the video conference.
Mahajan is also likely to formally launch the youth wing’s Vijay Lakshya (Victory Target), 2019 campaign on the same day, with the slogan ‘Lakshya Humara Modi Dobara’.
The BJYM has planned as many as 17 programmes to reach out to the first-time voters and millennial voters across the country.
