NEW DELHI: Making Atmanirbhar Bihar its main electoral pitch for the upcoming assembly elections, the BJP will launch a toll-free number soon for the state, asking people to call and give their views on how the movement "vocal for local" can be taken forward.

A party functionary said the launch of the toll-free number was to make Atmanirbhar Bihar a movement with people's participation and to get them to engage with the party on what their vision was. The party is also getting ready to prepare its vision document which is also likely to be centred around the Atmanirbhar campaign.

Earlier this week, the Opposition Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) had launched a toll-free number calling upon the youth to call and talk about the lack of jobs in the state.


Apart from the toll-free number, the BJP has also prepared a theme song, and is getting ready to send out over a hundred digital raths with LEDs into the state. The calls to the number will be monitored by a group of trained personnel, a party functionary told ET.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the digital launch of the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY) urged the people of Bihar to lead the way for self reliance of the nation by focussing on indigenous products such as makhana, zardalu mangoes, litchi and madhubani paintings.

BJP president JP Nadda is expected to launch the Atmanirbhar campaign in Patna on Saturday, where he will also meet the fishing community members from the state. The party's national organisation secretary BL Santhosh was in the state earlier this week, and had held a spate of meetings with different departments of the party state unit.

While launching the RJD's number Tejashwi Yadav had alleged that Bihar had over 4.50 lakh vacancies in various departments including police and others, but the state government was playing politics instead of fulfilling the vacancies.

The BJP has often launched toll-free numbers to promote its political campaigns. It launched one to garner support on Citizenship Amendment Act, and also one in Bihar to enable people to call and register their complaints of corruption against the Trinamool Congress government in the state. The membership drive of the party has also been on missed calls.
