Mumbai: BJP president Amit Shah who was to meet singer Lata Mangeshkar today, and share the Modi government’s achievements as part of his party’s “contact for support” campaign, will not be able to do so.
Mangeshkar tweeted that she was unwell with food poisoning and she spoke to Amit Shah over the phone.
@mangeshkarlata Aaj BJP ki adhyaksha mananeey @AmitShah ji se meri mulaqaat honewali thi parantu mujhe food poisoning hone ki wajah se maine unse telephone pe baat karke milne mein asamarthta vyakt ki aur agli baar jab bhi wo Mumbai aayenge tab unse milne ka nivedan kiya.
Shah, who will be in Mumbai today, is also scheduled to meet Ratan Tata and Uddhav Thackeray. He will meet sporting legend Milkha Singh on June 7 in Chandigarh.
The BJP launched a mega public drive, sampark for samarthan, following the Modi government’s fourth anniversary on May 26. It announced that 4,000 functionaries of the party will contact one lakh people, who are well-known names in their fields, to spread the word about the government’s works during its four-year tenure.
