Khurana's Parivartan Yatra to end today

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI SEPT. 29. Senior BJP leader and chairman of the party's Election Campaign Committee, Vijay Kumar Malhotra, today announced that the Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani, would address a roadside meeting at Jantar Mantar tomorrow to mark the culmination of the successful 35-day Parivartan Yatra of the Delhi BJP president, Madan Lal Khurana. The yatra, which covered 70 Delhi Assembly segments, had received unprecedented response from the people, he claimed.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr. Malhotra said the party had also put in place the process for selection of candidates and eight groups had been formed for this purpose. Mr. Malhotra claimed that Congressmen had been unnerved by the success of Mr. Khurana's yatra and were taking out local yatras in order to counter the BJP's growing popularity among the electorate. Mr. Khurana had launched his Parivartan Yatra on August 17 and covered all the 70 Assembly segments. The yatra got a very resounding response in Shalimar Bagh and Nangloi Assembly segments during its run on Sunday.

Mr. Malhotra said that the BJP had appointed two office bearers who would visit every mandal and prepare the list of prospective candidates. In addition to this, names would also be invited from presidents of various cells, winning MLAs and Councillors of 1993, 1997, 1998 and 2002 polls. He said in some districts, the work for the selection of candidates had already begun and it is hoped that the process of consultations with the mandals would conclude by October 5. After that consultations would be held with the office bearers of the district units and MPs. It is expected that recommendations of the state unit would be sent to the central leadership by October 20.
