Amit Shah also stated the BJP's reach needs to be further expanded to new regions and sections of the society.
BJP president Amit Shah Thursday emphasised that the party has still not peaked in terms of its electoral performance despite winning the highest ever 303 seats in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha elections.
In a meeting of the BJP’s national office-bearers, which was chaired by Shah, the party president said the party’s reach needs to be further expanded to new regions and sections of the society. Addressing a press conference, BJP’s general secretary Bhupender Yadav shared the details of Shah’s speech in the meeting.
Attributing the party’s success in the Lok Sabha polls to party workers, Yadav said Shah credited the hard work of the crores of party supporters for the BJP getting more than 50 per cent vote share in 220 seats.
Yadav also informed that during the meeting it was decided that former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is also a vice-president of BJP, will lead the party’s membership drive and he will be assisted by four other leaders. Yadav said BJP has 11 crore members at present and is aiming to increase it by 20 per cent.
