New Delhi: In an attempt to make inroads in the Other Backward Classes (OBC) vote bank in the forthcoming civic polls, Delhi BJP will orangise the community’s meet on Friday. The party believes that the OBC voters, who have a sizeable presence in the city, will be crucial for its victory in the municipal polls to held in April.

To give importance to the community, the party has for the first time formed a separate morcha (wing) for OBCs and appointed a president under the new team of state president Manoj Tiwari. Former Delhi BJP Yuva Morcha president and DUSU office bearer, Gaurav Khari, has been made the first president of OBC Morcha. A senior party leader told this newspaper that changing its own strategy, the Delhi BJP has decided to focus on the OBCs from now onwards as it comprises one third of electoral in the city.

 

 “There are two types of OBC in the national capital. One, the communities originally belongs from the city And second one are those communities who have migrated from other parts,” said a party leader.

Party sources said that the BJP will focus OBC along with its other traditional vote bank and tell the community that the Prime Minister Narandra Modi is also belongs to them.

“It is always projected that the BJP is against dalits, OBCs and minorities, which is not true. Our rival project us as an enemies of these communities. Through a separate OBC wing (Morcha), our leaders will reach out to them by various ways,” he added.
