The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is cooking 5,000 kg of samrasta khichdi for its Bhim Mahasangam Vijay Sankalp rally at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi on January 6. Rice and lentils for the preparation of the khichdi have been collected from three lakh Dalit households.
BJP president Amit Shah is scheduled to address the rally being held to showcase the reach of the party within the Dalit community in Delhi.
The khichdi will be cooked in one big utensil for the event. Delhi BJP SC Morcha president Mohanlal Gihara said, “A specially designed vat, measuring 20 feet in diameter and six feet in depth, will be used to cook the khichdi with ingredients like rice, pulses, salt and water.”
Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Friday said that the party’s proposed assembly of people from backward classes has rattled the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress.
“The samrasta khichdi is meant for creating positive energy and well being of people, but it has rattled the AAP and the Congress,” Tiwari said in a press conference.
The BJP aims to register a world record at Guinness Book by cooking 5,000 kg of khichdi.
The current world record of largest khichdi cooked is 918.8 kg, which was achieved by celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor and Ministry of Food Processing Industries at the World Food India festival held in Delhi in November 2017.
Nagpur chef Vishnu Manohar has been invited to cook the khichdi today.
“A world record of cooking 3,000 kg khichdi in one utensil is in the name of Nagpur chef Vishnu Manohar. The same person will create a new record by cooking 5,000 kg of samrasta khichdi in one utensil at the event,” Manoj Tiwari said.
The event is being organised by the BJP’s SC Morcha.
SC Morcha activists distributed 14 lakh pamphlets during the collection of rice and lentils and informed people about the public welfare schemes of the Modi government.
