Delhi BJP plans to open ‘Namo centres’ in slums to help people get benefits of central schemes



Delhi BJP plans to open “Namo centers” in slums to help people take advantage of centralized programs.


  • NaMo Sewa Kendra’s concept aims to help people find those who are within their reach.
  • It is planned to recruit local skilled youth to manage these centers with maximum benefit to local residents.
  • Party leaders said Juggi Samman Yatra was getting a “great response” in the slums.

Delhi BJP plans to open Namo Seva Kendras in the slums of some 32 constituencies in the city, strengthening its Juggi Samman Yatra outreach campaign ahead of crucial municipal corporate polls early next year, party leaders said.

BJP, which has run three municipal corporations since 2007, launched Jhuggi Samman Yatra in Vijaya Dashmi (October 15), seeking to educate slum dwellers on the Modi government’s various welfare programs and expose the Kejriwala government’s “failures” to the city.

“NaMo Sewa Kendras will serve as centers to directly assist slum dwellers to benefit from Modi government programs such as Ujwala Yojna, Jahan Juggi Wahan Makan and others,” said a senior official at the Delhi BJP.

Delhi BJP President Adesh Gupta and other leaders have so far bypassed the pockets of slums in 17 constituencies throughout the city under the “Juggi Samman Yatra”.

The party identified 32 such high-density slum-density districts.

“During these visits, there was a feeling that many people were unable to take advantage of the Modi government’s schemes, although they faced a serious problem with water, electricity, sewerage and other such amenities, which are managed by the Kejriwala government,” the party said.

According to him, the concept of “NaMo Sewa Kendra” was inspired by the idea of ​​at least helping people find those who are within their reach.

“The plan is to recruit local skilled youth to manage these centers with maximum benefit to local residents,” he said.

Party leaders said Juggi Samman Yatra is receiving a “great response” in slum urban areas.

“We have already started helping people obtain Ujjwala Yojna gas connections and register them through other benefit schemes such as Jan Dhan Yojna. People in need are also provided immediate assistance through the distribution of saris to women and food kits, ”said a BJP spokesman in Delhi. President Aditya Jha.

The BJP is pitting a resurgent AAP based on the popularity of the government’s free water and electricity schemes in Kejriwal to compete for 272 municipal districts across three municipal corporations that are expected to go to far-reaching polls next April.

Many Delhi BJP leaders believe that the results of the Assembly polls in Punjab, Uttarakhand and especially Uttar Pradesh will influence the results of municipal polls in the city.

“Yogi Adityanath’s good performance at UP will increase our chances here, as it did in the 2017 elections in which we beat AAP in all three corporations,” another Delhi leader told BJP.

The strategy for polling civilians will also figure in discussions at the Delhi BJP’s executive committee meeting on Monday, party leaders said.

The one-day meeting will take place at the NDMC Convention Center, where national leadership leaders are expected to engage in political discussions. They added that the upcoming polls of municipal corporations will be discussed first.
