The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Odisha has claimed of crossing the 30 lakh membership mark and expressed confidence that it would add 10 lakh more members by April 30 – the deadline set for the ongoing membership drive.
It was conveyed by Pratap Sarangi, Co-Convener of Membership Drive Committee of the Odisha unit of BJP. The party has stepped up all efforts to achieve the target over the next 10 days.
Once the membership drive is completed, the BJP members will move door to door from May 1 for verification purpose. Mostly, those people, who registered through mobile phones, will be targeted. Pratap Sarangi confirmed that most of the 30 lakh target has been achieved through the toll free number – 1800-266-2020. However, 4-5 lakh people registered via other means.
At the national level, the BJP has crossed 10 crore in its membership drive.
