Buoyed by Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's naming as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, the party's state unit is set to launch a massive membership drive tomorrow on the occasion of his 64th birthday.
"We are launching a massive drive to enrol 1 lakh people through each of our cells starting tomorrow, on Modi's birthday," said state BJP spokesperson, IK Jadeja.
Various BJP cells, dedicated to affairs of minorities, SCs and STs and youths, among others, have been given a target of enrolling 1 lakh people each during the nine-day drive, which will culminate on the birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhayay.
"Besides the enrolment drive, some 20,000 BJP workers will carry out social work to strengthen the organisational structure of the party over the coming nine days," Jadeja said.
BJP workers will spread awareness about the fight against malnutrition, distribute food at anganwadis, organise medical and blood donation camps and undertake tree plantation to celebrate Modi's birthday, he said.
Modi will be felicitated in Gandhinagar tomorrow by Gujarat Gaurav Abhivadan Samiti.
