Northeast sends 25 members to the Lower House of the Parliament and the BJP is reportedly eying 15-20 of them.
Singh met BJP representatives from states like Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram, Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura during the day and asked them to raise people's issues to connect better with the electorate. He said the BJP has always focussed on the northeast and will continue to raise its issues. He also mentioned that the previous NDA government had undertaken various development work in the region.
Rajnath Singh meet representatives from each state separately
The BJP chief also spoke to the party leadership of each state from the region and advised them ways to improve the party's poll preparation. He particularly asked them to focus on the anti-incumbency factor and the various anti-people policies that the government of the day has undertaken.
Singh was scheduled to meet the Assam party leadership on Thursday. The party has the best chances to do well in Assam, which also sends the most number of MPs from this part (14). The BJP won 11 out of 31 seats in the Guwahati civic polls in June this year.
