The journey of states will be involved where the BJP party is been traditionally weak. The 5 states will be, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana and Bengal. From Naxalbari the Vatra will begin, a village of West Bengal from where the Left-Wing extremism started in 1960s. Mr. Amit Shah is planning for each state to spend 3 days.
The goal is the 2019 general election, the plan of BJP party is to use the Vatra to instrument its fresh strategies for local body election which is going to place next year. The move is politically significant, after the BJP party cornered a chunk of the Left vote in the recently concluded by-election in Kanthi South, coming second to the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress party.
The Leader said, “The BJP will try to move to the second position in gram panchayats and at least few Zilla Parishads. This will signal to the Bengal voter that the BJP is emerging as an alternative.”

After the announcement of Mr. Amit Shah BJP party Chief travel plans, Smriti Irani the Textile Minister took a dig at Rahul Gandhi the Vice President of Congress party. Smriti Irani said, “The president of a party which has won one election after another is not resting on his laurel. This is the biggest difference between the BJP party and the Congress party," she further added, the choice of Naxalbari is meant to send a message of solidarity with BJP party workers, who have "suffered violence” there.
The leaders of the top party, which includes every Union Minister have asked to drive the Booth Level campaign. The party leader said, “Once in the BJP party fold, these leaders can utilise their machinery to organise the party at the booth level.”
The senior leader from BJP party said that Mr. Amit Shah will be taking Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s message of"development for all" to a place where a violent movement to uproot the Indian state had started.
