Lockdown may be extended with ‘change in work style’

While the parties were near unanimous about extending the lockdown, Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the concerns of DBT and emphasised the need to work differently to run the economy

The BJP has released a list of 40 star campaigners for canvassing in favour of its candidates in the Delhi assembly election, 2020. Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, film stars are also included in the list. While there will be Hema Malini and Sunny Deol among the actors-turned-politicians, Dinesh Lal alias Nirhua and Ravi Kishan will woo the new demography in the capital with roots in Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Due to the alliance in BJP-JDU-LJP in the Delhi assembly election, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and senior leader of Lok Janshakti Party Party and Union Minister Ram Vilas will campaign for their candidates. Senior leader of the Bihar unit of BJP and Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai will come to Delhi for campaigning.

People of Purvanchal and Bihar live in large numbers in Delhi. Although all the 70 seats of Delhi are influenced by Purvanchalis and Biharis, referred to as a group as “Purvaiyas”, in about 25 seats they may prove decisive factors. Bhojpuri artistes Ravi Kishan and Dinesh Lal alias Nirhua cater to that constituency.

There are many names in the list of star campaigners of the BJP who are from the film world. These include Hema Malini and Sunny Deol. They had campaigned for the BJP candidates of Delhi-NCR in the Lok Sabha elections of 2019 too.

Sapna Chaudhary, known for her dance in Haryana, western Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan as well as Bihar, has not been included in the BJP’s list of star campaigners. This is surprising as she had campaigned zealously in favour of Manoj Tiwari when he contested from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha seat in the Lok Sabha elections 2019 and also participated in a roadshow.

The BJP has included former cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who won from East Delhi Lok Sabha election seat, and Hansraj Hans, MP from North West Delhi Lok Sabha seat, have been included in the list of 40 star campaigners.
