The party plans to launch door-to-door membership drive soon. Due focus is laid on roping in youth, for which the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) is making the extra effort. ABVP is duly harnessing the power of social media by promoting its Facebook page and it has received a huge number of ‘likes’.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is on a mission mode these days to endear itself to the masses through its membership drive and by organising programmes at regular intervals across the State.

Besides, its frontal organisations are working overtime to consolidate the party’s electoral gains by enrolling the maximum number of people in it. The party is set to embark on a door-to-door membership enrolment campaign from this month-end.

The ongoing nationwide digital membership drive had the party’s ranks swell by more than 60 lakh, according to BJP State general secretary J. Syam Kishore.

He told The Hindu that the number of BJP supporters, who were registered online and through mobile phones in Andhra Pradesh, was not available as the database was collated in Delhi. But, the response has been tremendous going by the steady stream of enquiries.

Meanwhile, the joining of former Congress Minister Kanna Lakshminarayana a few days ago gave the BJP a fillip and it is looking at some more important leaders to switch their loyalties from the Congress. This is amidst the talk that Jai Samaikyandhra Party president and former Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy is inclined to making the BJP his abode.

However, this was obviously not confirmed by BJP State president K. Haribabu who maintained the party was poised to grow stronger for 2019 elections at par with its ally TDP but not at its cost.
