In what seem as an attempt to mollify the fraying people who have struggling to lay hands on cash for over a month following the government’s demonetisation drive, the Delhi BJP has asked its cadre to distribute one laddoo per family to ‘thank them for their patience’. 

The party, it appears, wants to express its gratitude to the people for patiently bearing the inconvenience caused by demonetisation and for supporting the move. 

Confirming the report, newly appointed Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari told The Indian Express, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched this revolutionary step to tackle black money. Despite facing some inconvenience, people supported the move. Now, it is our turn to thank them and show our appreciation and respect for their patience.”

He confirmed that the cadres have been told to distribute sweets door to door in their areas from January 1 to January 10. 

“We will encourage our workers to reach out to people. Logon ka dhanywaad karna to banta hai (We should express our gratitude). If people can stand in queues and not complain, can’t we give them a laddoo as a token of our appreciation,” he said. 

“One laddoo to your neighbour will not hurt. Rather, it shows how grateful we are to them for the patience they have shown by supporting the Prime Minister’s decision… We will request our workers to come forward and buy at least one laddoo for their neighbour. 

If they want to buy five laddoos for five households, it will be even better,” he added.
