With just a couple of months left for Lok Sabha Elections 2024, Union Home Minister Amit Shah met with Karnataka BJP leaders on Sunday and reportedly shared a 'winning formula' for the upcoming elections.

According to the sources, Shah has goal to win all 28 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka with the help of the JD(S) ally. In addition to this, during his Mysuru visit, Union Minister Shah also asked the state unit target of ensuring 10% increase in the upcoming elections. 

Key Points Of The Strategy

Leverage Modi's Popularity: Convert Prime Minister Narendra Modi's popularity into votes at the ground level.
Booth-Level Focus: Increase BJP-JD(S) vote share by 10% at each polling booth.
Targeted Outreach: Focus on specific communities and regions to address local concerns.
Organizational Strength: Strengthen party organization and mobilize workers effectively.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, BJP won 26 seats, Congress and JD(S) secured one each. BJP and JD(S) recently formed an alliance for the upcoming elections. This ambitious target comes amidst reports of internal BJP disputes and potential challenges from opposition parties.

The Karnataka BJP core committee meeting was headed by the Union home minister. Subsequently, the BJP's Mysuru Lok Sabha cluster, comprising leaders from the Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Mandya, and Hassan constituencies, met.

With support from its coalition partner JD(S), the BJP is hoping to gain ground in the Old-Mysore region where the constituencies are located. At least two of the four aforementioned constituencies will be represented by the regional party led by former prime minister H D Deve Gowda in the election.

Nikhil Kumaraswamy, head of the JD(S) Youth Wing, responded that JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy was unable to meet Shah because of health issues when questioned about the JD(S) not being invited to meetings presided over by the union minister.
