Addressing BJP office bearers and workers in the meeting, Tiwari said, "We have to start preparing for the 2020 Assembly elections in Delhi without taking rest." He said that party workers need to contact people in their areas and tell them that it is "necessary" to have a BJP government in Delhi for development and resolving their problems.
