New Delhi: In an effort to woo young voters, BJP will set up around 2,500 ‘Selfie with Modi’ booths across Delhi where people will be able to click their pictures with a virtual replica of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The first such ‘Selfie with Modi’ booth was inaugurated by BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday in Central Delhi’s Khan Market.
“The ‘Selfie with Modi’ is our party’s initiative to connect with the young voters in the city,” said Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who was also present.
He added,”PM Narendra Modi has a popularity of his own and to reach out to the people before the elections in a way like this is very innovative.”
When Mr Pradhan was asked why ‘Selfie with Modi’ and not with Kiran Bedi when she is the party’s face in the Delhi Assembly election, he said,”Kiran Bedi is roaming across Delhi, sometimes she is travelling by rickshaw, sometime she is having tea from roadside stalls, people can anyway reach out to her and click pictures.
Moreover, Narendra Modi is our Prime Minister whereas Kiran Bedi is our chief ministerial candidate. So we have launched this Selfie with Modi campaign.”Â
