In terms of election management, the BJP
has refined its approach by assigning "panna pramukhs" to each page of the voters' list. These workers establish personal contact with voters whose names appear on their assigned page, aiming to mobilize maximum support for the party. Nadda addressed a meeting of these "panna pramukhs" in the city, highlighting the party's efforts to engage with voters at a grassroots level.
