A yr after the mega launch of the ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ (Speak to Didi) marketing campaign by chief minister Mamata Banerjee on July 29 final yr, Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee has launched the ‘Banglar Jubo Shakti’ (Bengal’s Youth Energy) initiative to create one lakh ‘Jubo Joddhas’ (Youth Warriors) within the state.
The brainchild of political strategist Prashant Kishor, the transfer by the ruling celebration in West Bengal, after the success of ‘Didi Ke Bolo’, is more likely to additional energise the TMC rank and file. Kishor was roped in for his political acumen by Mamata on June 6, 2019, after the Bharatiya Janata Get together made deep inroads into the state throughout the Lok Sabha polls.
Trinamool Youth Congress (TMYC) has already accomplished the registration course of until June 11, 2020 to create a separate wing known as ‘Jubo Joddhas’. Three committees for state, district and subject have been created comprising round 2,800 TMYC members for efficient implementation of this initiative.
“The registration of youths from throughout the state has already accomplished on June 11 and people who are 18-35 years of age can turn into a Jubo Joddha. That is going to be vital for us to tackle the misinformation being unfold by the BJP in Bengal,” a TMC chief stated.
Put up registration, all of the folks shall be redirected to a WhatsApp group of their respective meeting constituency in order that they will keep carefully related with the opposite Jubo Joddhas lively within the space.
Quickly, a mega digital interactive session shall be organised to satisfy and work together with the one lakh Jubo Joddhas, and to tell them in regards to the actions that they should undertake in making the celebration sturdy on the block stage by serving to the folks in want.
Talking to Information18, BJP state vice-president Pleasure Prakash Majumdar stated, “It’s unlucky that the TMC is now totally depending on an outsider known as Prashant Kishor to arrange their political street map forward of the subsequent meeting polls within the state. This exhibits that the ruling celebration is dropping its reputation among the many plenty. Over time they misplaced their ‘join’ with the folks whereas looting public cash. I consider that such initiatives like ‘Didi Ke Bolo’, ‘Banglar Gorbo Mamata’ and now ‘Jubo Joddhas’ should not going to assist them in forming the subsequent authorities in Bengal. Like ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ and ‘Banglar Gorbo Mamata’ (Bengal’s Pleasure Mamata), ‘Jubo Joddhas’ can also be going to be a flop present. It’s evident that the TMC is now petrified of the BJP’s immense reputation in Bengal and that is the explanation they’re stopping us from standing beside the folks on this time of Covid-19 and Cyclone Amphan disaster. We’re assured to kind the subsequent authorities in Bengal as persons are fed up with the ‘damaging’ TMC.”
Didi Ke Bolo was launched by Mamata Banerjee on July 29, 2019. It’s a distinctive initiative to supply a platform to all to attach immediately with the chief minister with their grievances and strategies. Anybody can attain out to her by calling 9137091370 or by logging onto www.didikebolo.com.
The target of this initiative is to enhance citizen participation and engagement for expedited motion. It’s going to attain out to just about 80 per cent of the households in West Bengal to tell and interact them with the initiative over the subsequent a number of months.
Underneath this marketing campaign, celebration staff should meet native cadres and influential individuals of a village. They need to conduct three-four hours of ‘Jan Sanjog Sabha’ (Public Interplay Meets) at each pre-identified village, and dinner with native celebration staff and booth-level members is a should.
Additionally, celebration staff need to spend an evening on the home of one of many celebration members and supporters, conduct door-to-door visits and hoist the celebration flag at a pre-identified venue of significance.
Within the 2016 meeting election, the BJP’s vote share was 10.2 per cent and within the 2019 Lok Sabha polls it went as much as 40.three per cent. There was a rise of 30.1 per cent vote share primarily due to Hindus coalescing in direction of the BJP. Within the final three years, the saffron celebration has managed to domesticate religion-driven politics in Bengal.
A detailed evaluation exhibits that from the 2011 meeting polls to the 2016 ones, the Left Entrance misplaced its vote share by 9.88 per cent and from the 2014 Lok Sabha election to the 2019 version its vote share additional plummeted to about 16 per cent.
Nevertheless, the Congress vote share from the 2011 to the 2016 meeting polls elevated from 8.91 per cent to 12.three per cent, however it fell drastically within the 2014 Lok Sabha election (9.6 per cent) whereas within the 2019 polls the celebration managed to safe solely 5 per cent.
Contemplating the rise within the BJP’s vote share, TMC leaders really feel that Jubo Joddhas will add extra energy to the ruling celebration on the floor stage.
On the opposite facet, analysts say the state BJP wants to come back out with a technique to take care of points just like the resentment over the change in citizenship guidelines and the migrant staff disaster, which can go towards the celebration within the coming state polls.
