Learn from RSS workers’ perseverance in voter outreach: Sharad Pawar’s piece of advice to NCP workers


NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Thursday gave a piece of advice to his party workers in reaching out to voters. He was speaking at a meeting of party leaders and workers from Pimpri-Chinchwad area near here.

“I do not say we have to follow everything the RSS workers do, but we can certainly learn from their determination and persistence while visiting voters,” he said.

He further said that party workers should not feel dejected because of Lok Sabha elections but start preparing for upcoming Maharashtra state elections.

Recalling his conversation with a BJP leader, Pawar said, “He told me that your party workers go to peoples’ houses and if nobody is home, they drop the party’s pamphlet at the doorstep and leave.

“But if an RSS worker working for the party (BJP) finds the door closed in the morning, he will visit that house again in the evening. If it is still closed, he will go to the same house the next morning and will ensure that he meets the people living there and hand over the pamphlet,” he said.

“We need not follow them entirely, but the way they show persistence in developing public relations, I feel that persistence is very important,” the veteran politician said.
