New Delhi: The BJP launched a month-long exercise called “Bharat ke mann ki baat, Modi ke saath” on Sunday to seek suggestions from the public before the party prepares its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
In a statement, BJP’s media head and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni said that BJP president Amit Shah and home minister Rajnath Singh, who is also the head of the party's manifesto committee, will launch the programme on Sunday.
"We are starting this programme with the belief that it will prove to be the biggest cooperative exercise to draw outlines for a country's future," Baluni added.
