    However, the party sources said that but the bigger role will be played by the booth committees which not only have the objective of making them member but have the responsibility of bringing to the programmes of the BJP and take them to the booth on the day of polling. The BJP wants its number in every Lok Sabha as invincible so as per its plan it wants to take up to 51 per cent.
