Inspired by the concept of "PannaPramukh", the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Bihar unit is using "Saptarishis" to connect with voters in the entire state. "PannaPramukh", is a key campaign tool considered to have been perfected by BJP president Amit Shah during the 2014 general elections. Each PannaPramukh works at the booth level and is in-charge of one page of the booth's voters' list. "One page of the electoral roll has votes from around seven to eight households and being a local, the PannaPramukh knows the voters. Each PannaPramukh has to ensure that the voters on his page cast their votes." This BJP innovation has been credited for the party's election victories. The Saptarishis will be required to go to the door step of every voter and explain the public welfare works of the party in the last 15 years as an alliance partner in the Bihar government. They will also take their feedback. The Saptarishis will work under the booth level agent (BLA). "Saptarishi means seven, so seven workers will be allocated for each booth. They will work under the BLA of each booth in Bihar. The idea is to reach the door step of every voter," said Akhilesh Kumar Singh, official spokesperson of the BJP in Bihar. (IANS)
