New Delhi, Aug 8: Bharatiya Janata Party is planning to start a branch of Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini's either in Delhi or near Delhi. The party is looking for a suitable land and place to set up the branch of one of the most specialized institution of the BJP to benefit its workers.
Sources said that national BJP president Amit Shah has been looking for a suitable place near Delhi so that the branch office of Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini could be set up. The organisation provides training to the political workers in a most professional manner which is named after Late Rambhau Mhalgi - a former BJP MP. Former Union minister Late Pramod Mahajan had played key role in developing the RMP.
Sources said that earlier there was a plan to give this responsibility to Vijay Sharma, former organisation secretary of Delhi BJP and the branch was to be planned in Haryana but now Sharma has been assigned something else. At present chairman of Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini is Prof Anirudhdh Deshpande, vice chairman is Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Sahashrabudhdhe, who is an expert in political training.
Sources said that RMP works as an academy for training and orientation of socio-political activists and a centre for overall public-awakening activities and research projects. The institution was launched mainly as a memorial of Late Rambhau Mhalgi in 1982 as a unique Training and Research Academy, primarily aimed at enhancing the capabilities of voluntary activists and elected representatives of the people.
However, over the years it has been groomed as a multi-dimensional institute. Apart from training elected representatives, activists, civil servants and journalists, The RMP also provides conference and accommodation facilities to corporate houses. Sources said that just before the 2019 elections, the BJP needs training of lots of its workers. Moreover, training is not just election-centric. It is done 365 days so the BJP wants to set up an organisation close to Delhi so more people could be benefited.
