“Out of the total 10 crore members enrolled with the BJP, 1 crore are from Maharashtra alone. These enrolments were done through mobile phones. Now, there is a need of heart-to-heart connect with masses to take the abhiyan forward. Thus, to discuss the way further, Party President Amit Shah will come to Mumbai tomorrow evening,” Maharashtra State Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said, on July 7, a day before Shah’s tour.
