Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday kick-started its offline registration process for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's 'Navabharat Yuvabheri' meeting scheduled for August 11 in the city. BJP state chief G Kishan Reddy informed that such counters would be opened in all major towns and delegates could register their names until August 11.
The saffron party fixed a nominal fee of Rs 5 for each delegate interested to enroll his or her name for the youth rally. This amount would later be donated for the relief and rehabilitation works in flood ravaged Uttarakhand State. It may be mentioned here that the online registration process commenced last week, which even led to slugfest between the two national parties.
Speaking on the occasion, Kishan Reddy slammed the Congress for making a big issue out of nothing. He pointed out that small donations were used to be collected even during the times of Mahatma Gandhi and Jayaprakash Narayan. "The more the criticism levied by the Congress party, popularity for Modi would double that much," he added.
Meanwhile youth morcha president Vishnuvardhan Reddy observed that the tremendous response for Narendra Modi meeting proved his growing popularity even in South India. Not only youth from far-off places like Tirupati and Khammam, but also a Muslim woman registered their names no sooner the registration counter was opened at the BJP state office, he said.
