BJP to tie up with JD-U in K'taka: Rajnath
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | April 05, 2008 18:21 IST
Addressing media persons after launching an email system that would link the party to every booth as envisaged by him, Rajnath said: "Last time too we had tied up with JD-U, which went on to win five out of the 25 seats that were allotted to them."
The BJP Central Election Committee will meet on April 10 to clear the names of candidates, who would be given tickets to contest elections.
"The system of party dropping some and including new varies from state to state. It happened not only in Gujarat but in most states where elections took place. We would be posting Advaniji's book on the party website for our 40 million karyakartas (activists)," he said.
Meanwhile, talking about the new email system, Rajnath said the new project had cost the party about Rs 20 lakh so far.
"In fact, email provisioning is part of a larger strategy I have of automating the party. My plan is to connect our offices and individual activists through modern communication tools, and enable them to leverage the benefits of technology to do their work better.
