With an aim to secure victory in the upcoming assembly elections, Bhartiya Janata Party, i.e. BJP is going to deploy 200 Vistaraks in all 200 assembly constituencies across the state until the polls are over. These Vistaraks will be allotted an assembly area after which work will be done to strengthen the party. Before the deployment, all 200 Vistaraks will be given organizational training.
Notably, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is known for its tradition of Pracharak and Vistarak. In order to strengthen the party, BJP also decided to adapt to the practice last year wherein some part workers were assigned as Vistaraks.
