BJP to intensify caste outreach, plans gatherings for specific groups

The BJP plans to intensify its caste-based outreach in Uttar Pradesh ahead of next year’s assembly through sammelans (gatherings) of people from specific castes among other backward classes (OBCs) and Scheduled Castes (SCs).

It has appointed its UP state vice president Dayashankar Singh as the in-charge of OBC Morcha meetings and another vice president, Devendra Singh Chaudhary, as the in-charge of SC Morcha meetings.

“We have identified around 22 castes in OBC and MBC (most backward castes) category. These include Yadav, Kurmi, Nishad, Rajbhar, Chauhan, Kashyap and others,” Dayashankar Singh told ET. “We will organise specific caste sammelans starting from October 8 in Lucknow. Going forward, we are planning and deciding on the dates as the party’s senior leaders shall participate in these meetings.”

For the castes which have a presence across the state, the meetings will take place in Lucknow. For those which have a strong dominance in a particular region, meetings will be held in those regions.

On October 8, a meeting of Nishad and Kewat community is prosed in Lucknow which will be attended by deputy CM Keshav Maurya and state BJP president Swatantra dev Singh. Other proposed meetings are of Teli community on October 17, Maurya, Saini and Shakya community on October 18 and Rajbhar community on October 19. Along with other leaders, UP BJP election in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan will be present in the meeting on October 19.

BJP leaders told ET that these meetings will not be attended by party workers. The focus is to get 10-15 influential people of those castes from each district. “These could be social activists, small party leaders, people running their own organisations and some respected people of that caste,” said Singh.

From the BJP, senior state leaders including chief minister and state ministers will participate. National leaders of those castes will also be invited to such meetings. “We are thinking of inviting Union minister Bhupender Yadav for Yadav sammelan,” said Singh.

Similarly, the party has identified 10-15 castes among the SCs. “There are several castes under SC category such as Jatav, Kori, Balmiki, Baghel, Pasi and others. We will start with a Jatav sammelan at the state level in Lucknow,” Devendra Singh Chaudhary told ET. “Later, we will take it to district level.” He said meetings of the SC Morcha are going on in all six regions of the state.
