This in-depth study made by the professionals has given the party a road map and a blueprint for taking the party's 'commendable' levels of the revival of its positioning in state politics. 'We are in fact aiming at an outright win and we should be able to form the government with a comfortable majority, but there is a lot of groundwork to take up in the next few months', stated a source from the inner circle of the party.
According to the details available with The Hans India, the party has accepted a five-point election strategy which will drive the campaigns. The campaign managers have also been briefed about the issues taken up during the campaigns. It will be a target-directed campaign based on the hyper-local issues connected to regional and state-level issues and concerns.
The party in a departure from the old model of campaigning will focus on progressive thoughts, sending out positive vibes to the voters. It will not resort to political witch hunting, or rhetorics and will dispense with all nuances that will promote communal sentiments. This will percolate to the booth-level workers and to the candidates a source in the party told this correspondent. However, the party unit will take a call on who should campaign and where. The machinery put together for this purpose will also decide on the star campaigners.
