With only three days left of campaigning in Madhya Pradesh, a tripartite delegation of foreign diplomats currently stationed in New Delhi is scheduled to visit Indore on November 14-15, immersing themselves in and gaining firsthand insights into the electoral strategies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), as revealed by the party on Monday. The delegation comprises Michael Rees, the second secretary at the Australian High Commission, Bazil M Lyakinana, minister plenipotentiary specialising in consular affairs at the High Commission of Tanzania, and Mayumi Tsubakimoto, the second secretary at the Japanese Embassy.
The chosen city for this diplomatic exploration is Indore, situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, where the electoral atmosphere is vibrant in anticipation of the upcoming assembly polls on November 17. The BJP highlighted that this initiative is in line with its ongoing efforts to engage with the international diplomatic community and showcase the dynamics of its election campaign.
The BJP further noted that a precedent for such diplomatic engagement was set during the assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat in November and December 2022. Similar delegations comprising representatives from diplomatic missions of countries such as Nepal, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, and Singapore had visited these states to closely observe and assess the BJP’s election campaign strategies.
This diplomatic exchange is part of the larger “Know BJP” initiative, a program launched by the party’s national president, J P Nadda, on its 43rd foundation day. The initiative aims to foster a deeper understanding among the international community about the BJP’s political ideology, electoral strategies, and governance principles.
