New Delhi, Jan 28: At a time when big day (Feb 7) is around the corner, BJP is toying with all permutations and combinations to outshine rival AAP.
Modi-led BJP is known for its innovative ways since Lok Sabha days when it used social media campaign, live chat and 3D rallies to woo voters. Now party looks in mood to replicate same technology driven campaign in Delhi polls too.
Ahead of Delhi election, to woo Delhi voters party has started a new project 'Selfie with Modi'. This trend hit the headlines first during Lok Sabha election when Prime Minister Narendra Modi clicked the selfie with party symbol.
BJP chief Amit Shah had on Saturday had kick-started the 'Selfie with Modi' campaign by inaugurating a selfie booth at Central Delhi's Khan Market. BJP will set up around 2,500 such booths across the city where people will be able to click their photos with a "virtual Narendra Modi".
"It is an outstanding step by the Bharatiya Janata Party. Now anyone can have a selfie with our Prime Minister for free. I have heard they (AAP) charge for a selfie," the Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers told reporters at the Delhi BJP office.
On Sunday, Union Minister Ananth Kumar said now anyone can have a selfie with the Prime Minister for free whereas, he claimed, AAP charges people for clicking a picture with its chief Arvind Kejriwal.
The Aam Aadmi Party has raised Rs 60 lakh donation at a fund-raiser lunch of Kejriwal organised by its traders' wing earlier this month. The traders had paid a minimum of Rs 20,000 each to have lunch with Kejriwal and a selfie.
"There is no need to find our PM. He is available for free. He himself is going to reach out to the the voters," Kumar said.
How the whole process actually works, IBN writes, "The BJP has
used the concept of augmented reality and placed party symbol lotus
having sensors in the store. As soon as someone stands in front of
it, Modi's image appears in the camera".
