Nadda To Launch BJP’s ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’ In Madhya Pradesh

On Sunday, BJP national president JP Nadda will start his party’s ‘Jan Ashirward Yatra’ in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, with the aim of seeking the blessings of the people and connecting with them. The yatra was launched from the sacred city of Chitrakoot in Satna district. The BJP-governed Madhya Pradesh is due to hold assembly elections by the year-end.

“Naddaji is expected to reach Chitrakoot around 10 am. He will participate in a function to launch the yatra at approximately 11 am and flag it off at noon,” Satna BJP district president Satish Sharma told news agency PTI.

Another party functionary was quoted saying, “Four similar yatras will be initiated from other locations in the coming week.” Throughout these yatras, the BJP aims to connect with the people through large public gatherings, emphasizing the welfare schemes implemented by the Centre and the state, as well as their achievements.

Party leaders have indicated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address a meeting of BJP workers to mark the conclusion of these five mass-contact programs on September 25 in Bhopal. September 25 coincides with the birth anniversary of the late Deendayal Upadhyaya, a prominent leader of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, which later evolved into the BJP.

OPS To Embark on Statewide Yatra in Tamil Nadu

Expelled AIADMK leader and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, O. Panneerselvam (OPS), is set to embark on a statewide yatra starting on September 3. This yatra, named ‘Puratchi Payanam’ (Revolutionary Campaign), will commence from the residence of the late C.N. Annadurai, the first Chief Minister of DMK and a Dravidian icon, in Kancheepuram, news agency IANS reported.

Panneerselvam’s loyalists have advised him to distance himself from the BJP to garner support from other communities, including minorities. The OPS camp has gained momentum through its statewide campaign against the slow pace of the investigation into the Kodanad heist-cum-murder case. OPS has also made headway in South Tamil Nadu after joining forces with Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) leader, TTV Dhinakaran, and conducting joint protests related to the same case.

Sources within the OPS camp told IANS that the senior leader will put forward a resolution against the ruling DMK government, as well as against EPS, during the yatra. OPS aims to energize the grassroots supporter base and, with the support of the AMMK’s organizational network, establish a presence across the state. OPS, TTV Dhinakaran, and V.K. Shashikala are all targeting the Thevar community’s vote bank to gain support in this critical juncture and to negotiate with national parties, including the BJP and Congress, ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
