The two-day camp of BJP president Amit Shah in Delhi could well see the launch of the party’s ‘Mission Delhi’ to end BJP’s 20-years of exile in the national Capital.
With nearly 16 meetings scheduled over two days, the BJP president will threadbare analyze the causes of BJP’s successive defeats in Delhi since 1993.
At the same time, he will check BJP’s preparedness for polls and chalk out strategies for the same, a senior BJP leader said.
BJP National President Amit Shah has big plans for Delhi
On Friday, the Delhi BJP leadership will give a detailed presentation on the existing political equations, caste combinations and demographic divide in Delhi.
Well placed sources said BJP’s passive approach in nearly 15 assembly constituencies, which it has never won, has been cited as a key reason behind party’s defeat.
This includes the debacle in 2004 and 2009 Lok Sabha elections, where BJP candidates lost to Congress by huge margins.
The party has though managed to retain power in MCDs but lost all assembly elections since 1998.
‘A comprehensive report on caste equations, slum dwellers and demographic division of Delhi’s voters has been prepared.
We will examine the cause of defeat as well as future strategy to strengthen party in the national Capital,’ a senior leader said.
The BJP finding says party’s inability to win 15 assembly seats has made the biggest difference.
Of these, five seats in Walled City are Muslim-dominated while five others are reserved seats.
The party’s failure to win these seats over the past two decades has been the primary reason for its failure in grabbing power in the national Capital.
Similarly, the BJP has been unable to project a prominent Muslim or Dalit face in these constituencies.
Dalit votes had essentially helped the Aam Aadmi Party win 28 seats in the 2013 Assembly polls, and prevent BJP from getting majority despite emerging as the single largest party.

However, sources said delimitation of assembly seats in Delhi in 2008 by Sheila Dikshit government also made these seats invincible for the BJP.
The party may also consider restructuring of assembly segments or even increasing the number of assembly seats to overcome the crisis.
The party has prepared a detail presentation categorising each booths and assembly under three categories – A, B and C. ‘A’ category booths or assembly segments include those where party has never lost elections.

‘B’ category has those seats where BJP gave tough fight and ‘C’ are those were party has never won.
The state unit has also prepared comprehensive report on voting patterns in slums, unauthorised colonies and areas dominated by migrant voters particularly the poorvanchalis.
During the meetings with various office bearers, Shah will also examine the recent Vistarak program undertaken by the BJP to assess the ground reality and add new members to the party.
