New Delhi [India], Jan 28 (ANI): The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to give further momentum to its campaign for Delhi polls after the union budget which is likely to have announcements for the national capital.
The budget will be presented at a time when the campaign for February 8 Delhi elections would have gathered full steam.
The BJP manifesto is likely to be presented after the budget. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to address two election rallies in outer Delhi and South Delhi after the release of the manifesto.
BJP has for now focused on smaller "sabhas (meetings)" rather than big rallies. According to BJP sources, this idea of Home Minister Amit Shah is proving to be very useful.
The Home Minister is continuously holding meetings with small groups of 100-200 people and has also instructed ministers to hold small meetings.
BJP sources say that the election will see a tough contest.
The party intends to dominate the TV as well as cyberspace.
BJP sources said the party will "play on the front-foot" and will also have a strategy on issues such as education, hospital, roads and electricity.
Sources said the Union Budget may also have announcements for the middle-classes and central government employees. (ANI)
