BJP to gather feedback from candidates under Mission 65 plus

Raipur, Dec 07 (UNI) Amid exit polls predicting a close fight between Congress and BJP in Chhattisgarh, the latter reviewed its Mission 65 plus at a meeting here on Friday, just four days ahead of counting. Mission 65 plus-a campaign was launched by BJP for formation of its government in the state for 4th consecutive term.
Party candidates from all 90 seats, District Unit Presidents and Election Controller and members of Core Committee attended the crucial review meeting. Candidates gave feedback over possible outcome of elections in their respective constituencies. The meeting has been convened mainly to assess the overall scenario in the state. Out of 90-member Chhattisgarh Assembly, a magic figure of 46 will be required to form the government.
The review meeting, held at its Ekatma Parisar Office, Raipur was attended by prominent leaders including Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, State BJP President Dharmlal Kaushik, National Co-Organizational General Secretary Soudan Singh, Scheduled Tribe National President and Rajya Sabha MP Ramvichar Neta, Speaker Gourishankar Agrawal, BJP General Secretary in-charge of party affairs in Chhattisgarh Dr Anil Jain and State BJP Organizational Secretary Pawan Sai.
BJP State President Dharamlal Kaushik said that BJP would emerge victorious. He said that Congress, after losing elections thrice in the state was creating a false impression about coming to power. According to Kaushik, Congress is showing its confidence of winning but it is filled with sense of fear of losing elections. He claimed that BJP would succeed in achieving Mission 65 plus target.
Addressing the review meeting Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh called for focusing at counting venues on December 11. He asked the workers to be alert for counting and properly understand the Election Commission rules. He claimed that BJP was going to form government for 4th consecutive term.
