New Delhi: Changing its election strategy, BJP will hold small meetings instead of big public meetings or rallies of senior leaders including party president Amit Shah. The BJP leadership believes that small corner meetings are more effective than public meetings or rallies.

The idea to organise corner meetings came from Mr Shah himself.

Addressing the party booth level workers meet at IGI Stadium on January 5, Mr Shah said that he will address small meetings to reach out to the electorate.

A party insider told this newspaper that the strategy for holding big public meetings or rallies has been changed after Mr Shah’s comment on Sunday and now the party will focus in organising small meetings of around 500 people.

It is learnt that Mr Shah is likely to address around 20 such small meetings.

BJP working president J.P. Nadda will be campaigning for party candidate in the national capital for four days and is likely to address 15 to 20 such meetings.

It is also learnt that the Union minister of state for home affairs and co-incharge of Delhi BJP for Assembly polls, Nityanand Rai, has asked the state leadership to arrange door-to-door campaign for him instead of public meetings.
