The BJP has decided to revamp the party's grassroot organisation in West Bengal with an eye on the panchayat polls in the state scheduled next year.

BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvergiya, who is in charge of Bengal, will be meeting various leaders in the districts and chalk out a strategy for the panchayat polls. "A road map will be prepared on how our party will counter the Trinamool Congress at the booth level. The last panchayat polls in the state had witnessed violence and TMC may resort to it again. We will chalk out a plan to counter such violence so that people can vote freely and fairly," a senior BJP leader said. According to him, Vijayvergiya will personally take stock of the ground level situation especially at the booth level and will make changes in the plan, if needed, in consultation with the state leadership.

The state leadership has prepared a list of booths according to the votes polled by the BJP in the last few elections. "A list of booths has been prepared and it has been graded according to votes received by the party in the last few elections", he said adding that booths where the party has faired well have been marked as Grade A. BJP state general secretary Sayantan Basu said panchayat election is of immense importance to the party.
