In a significant political event, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh embarked on a one-day visit to Madhya Pradesh on Monday. The purpose of his visit was to inaugurate the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Jan Ashirwad Yatra, a significant political campaign aimed at connecting with the people of the state and highlighting the achievements of the state government during its 18-year tenure.
During the course of this event, Rajnath Singh also addressed a public meeting, engaging directly with the people of Madhya Pradesh. The Defence Minister’s visit was a part of the BJP’s extensive preparations for the upcoming assembly elections in the state, scheduled to take place later in the year. The Jan Ashirwad Yatra serves as a platform to communicate the government’s accomplishments to the general public and counter any misinformation propagated by the opposition, particularly the Congress party.
The Jan Ashirwad Yatra is a massive undertaking, with a total of five Yatras scheduled to commence from different regions of the state. These Yatras will feature senior party leaders and cover all the assembly constituencies in Madhya Pradesh, spanning a distance exceeding 10,000 kilometers by the time it concludes on September 25th.
The inauguration of this political campaign began with BJP National President JP Nadda initiating the first Jan Ashirwad Yatra from Chitrakoot on the previous day. Rajnath Singh marked the beginning of the second Yatra during his visit. Union Home Minister Amit Shah is scheduled to commence the third and fourth Yatras on September 5 from Mandla and Sheopur, while Union Minister Nitin Gadkari will flag off the fifth Yatra from Khandwa on September 6. This concerted effort showcases the BJP’s commitment to engaging with the people of Madhya Pradesh and presenting their vision for the state’s future.
