After a very disappointing Lok Sabha Polls 2019, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, in introspection mode has reportedly asked his party workers to take a leaf out of RSS volunteers’ book and show perseverance in reaching out to voters. He was speaking at a meeting of party leaders and workers from Pimpri-Chinchwad area.
“I do not say we have to follow everything the RSS workers do, but we can certainly learn from their determination and persistence while visiting voters,” he said.
Party workers should not feel dejected because of the results of the Lok Sabha elections and start preparing for the Maharashtra Assembly elections which are due in October-November, Pawar said.
Recalling his conversation with a BJP leader, Pawar said, “He told me that your party workers go to peoples’ houses and if nobody is home, they drop the party’s pamphlet at the doorstep and leave.
“But if an RSS worker working for the party (BJP) finds the door closed in the morning, he will visit that house again in the evening. If it is still closed, he will go to the same house the next morning and will ensure that he meets the people living there and hand over the pamphlet,” he said.
“We need not follow them entirely, but the way they show persistence in developing public relations, I feel that persistence is very important,” the veteran politician said.
NCP workers should aim to meet every voter in their respective areas, he said.
