Road to 2024 begins; UP BJP to setup additional booth-level committees

With an eye on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Uttar Pradesh BJP is forming new booth committees and has requested that all regional and district chiefs furnish information on current ones by February 10.

On Saturday, BJP’s general secretary (organisation), Uttar Pradesh, Dharampal Singh, asked all regional in-charges and presidents, as well as district in-charges and presidents, to establish booths based on the most recent voters’ list.

A booth was set up for a maximum of 1,200 voters in the run-up to the 2022 assembly elections, but according to the voters’ list issued on January 5, every booth would now contain 1,500 voters, Singh said.As a result, the number of booths will be reduced.

However, the number of regions in the state will remain the same, according to Singh.

He has also forwarded the delimitation format to the office holders. According to the letter, it must be completed and submitted to the state headquarters’ election management committee by February 10.

The BJP’s organisational structure is made up of ‘Shakti Kendras,’ each of which has five to six booths. The BJP has over 27,000 ‘Shakti Kendras,’ 1,918 regions, and 98 organisational districts in Uttar Pradesh. The party has divided its workforce into six regions across the state: Kashi, Gorakhpur, Awadh, Kanpur-Bundelkhand, Braj, and West.

At a meeting of the BJP’s state working committee last month in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh unit president Bhupendra Singh Choudhary set the goal of winning all 80 seats in the state in the general elections.

The BJP and its ally Apna Dal (Sonelal) won 64 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in 2019. The Congress received one seat, the Samajwadi Party received five, and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) received ten. The SP and the BSP ran together in the elections.
