BJP sets up war rooms in eight states 23.10.2014 Asian Age: India
After its historic victories in Haryana and Maharashtra, the BJP is rapidly spreading its saffron network to get more states into its kitty. The party has set up war rooms in eight target states Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir and Karnataka. The saffron machinery, led by master strategist and party chief Amit Shah, has been pressed into service to form its own government in these eight states in the next three years. BJP spin doctors feel the party’s chances of winning these states are “high”, but it has to stengthen its organisation and cadre base to achieve this target. Hectic work has begun in these states, and the war rooms have been set up to chalk out and finetune electoral strategies, sources said. While Bihar and Jharkhand will go to the polls next year, elections in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand are due in 2017. Karnataka will vote in 2018.

Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi here on Wednesday dared elusive Ulfa (I) chief Paresh Baruah to contest elections to prove his popularity and support for plebiscite that he has been advocating. This came a day after separatist rebel leader Paresh Baruah in a telephonic interview to a local daily advocated plebiscite to resolve conflict in Assam. Mr Gogoi told reporters, “Ulfa chief Paresh Baruah’s advocacy for plebiscite is unrealistic and will find no takers in Assam.” The Ulfa chief in his interview stated, “Political leaders of India should try to learn about true democracy from countries like Great Britain and Canada.” He argued, “Great Britain dared to hold a plebiscite on the demand for separation of Scotland and solved the issue without any bloodshed. Canada had taken similar steps, but the political leaders of India do not have the courage to go for such a move.” Rejecting the idea of Ulfa commander, Mr Gogoi further said, “More than 99 per cent population of Assam has faith in federal structure ...
