    BJP general secretary Amit Shah, who also has UP affairs under his watch, gave enough hint on Wednesday that he wanted to improve the performance of the party in the next Lok Sabha polls over what it had done in 2009.

    “Forget worrying about Lok Sabha constituencies. Concentrate at the booth level. If you are able to take care of your booth, the rest of the things will fall in place,” he told BJP workers.

    In 2009, the BJP had won just 10 of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the state, with the SP, Congress and BSP ahead of it.

    Rushing from one meeting to another, Shah sported a “stern, scrutinising look” for the most part and by the time he was through, all the party leaders and cadre in the state had been assigned a specific task — adopting one booth in the state besides spending 20 days in rural UP each month. Shah made it clear that “everyone” would have to participate and indicated that he was willing to lead from the front by adopting one booth and spending nearly three weeks every month in UP till the elections.

    That he had done his homework was clear as he rattled off the figures — the number of booths in UP (127,700) — and then compared them with the official figure of the BJP’s active workers in UP (71,000) along with an estimated “3 million” ordinary workers.

    In the presence of RSS representative Saudan Singh, who had been sent to Lucknow from Chhattisgarh, Shah quizzed UP office-bearers, especially those who had been here for long, on the party’s slide in the state.

    What a sensational heading from none other than the Congress Mouthpiece the Hindustan Times.

    Booth Management is a scientific art perfected by the Left in WB. we all know even in the age of EVMs booth management is very important.

    Booth Management is the prime reason why Modi wins with such massive margin. Amit Shah did Ph.D in this lol. He should have been given enough time but still it's not late. Shah can do some wonders in UP if what he wants is properly executed.

    It is not really 'capturing' of booth, but actually nurturing the voters who will come to the booth.

    It is done in all democratic countries.

    To amplify my above post.

    Now, if this person is spending three months adopting a booth, does it mean that the voting is going on continuously over three month for him to 'booth capture' every day of the three months?

    All it means is to nurture and explain the Party's aims and policies to the voters who are registered for that booth!

    A rather misleading headline, but then each newspaper and TV channel have their own political backer and their own agenda!

    Left styled Booth management in Bengal was very different.

    In areas which were Congress Strongholds two tricks were applied

    1. Create violence so that people stay indoors or

    2. Stuff the booth with their dedicated supporters who move so slowly, so that looking at the long queues many people stay away.

    Of course it helped them that most of the staff at booth are drafted from the Govt. Schools and they in turn were appointed by the Party from their Cadre list.
