 Actor-turned-politician Manoj Tiwari intends to end the infighting within Delhi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) factions and strengthen the party unit ahead of the municipal elections in 2017. In a quick interview to Governance Now, Tiwari hinted that there could be a shuffle in the Delhi BJP unit. 

Question: What are your priorities?
Answer: Reaching out to the people is the (topmost) priority. People trust their leaders only when they reach out to them. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the party’s priority is to reach out to the masses. In the next 10 days, we will meet people in all 70 constituencies and ask them about the problems being faced by them in the last two years. It will help us assess the situation better. I am not just a Purvanchali, I am a Dilli waala as I represent north east Delhi in the parliament.
 
Question: AAP debuted in the MCD by-polls this year and could be a challenge to the BJP in next year’s MCD polls. How will the BJP fight back?
Answer: (Delhi chief minister Arvind) Kejriwal and his party do not practice what they preach. They came with the agenda to fight corruption, but since demonetization, they have been siding with the black marketers. They had furnished 70 points in their manifesto, but have hardly worked on anything. Secondly, the road to development cannot be seen anywhere. The previous governments worked in the same budget and developed fly-overs, roads etc, but this government has failed to work on ground.
 
Question: BJP is infamous for infighting. How do you plan to end that?
Answer: My seniors have tasked me with the duty to bolster the party unit. Certain firm decision might be required. If needed we will restructure the party organization. I am sure that under PM Modi and (BJP chief) Amit Shah’s guidance we will able to fight the AAP and the Congress.
 
Question: Anti-incumbency is a big factor. In the last two years, Delhi BJP has been struggling?
Answer: I won’t deny that it is one of the biggest challenges, but we have the good work by the MCD to show to the people. The three corporations face a financial crunch, but we have months to work out things. There have been allegations that (municipal corporations) are corrupt organizations. Therefore I have asked the councilors to submit their banking transactions from November 8 to December 31. (It is same as what) PM directed MPs and MLAs.
