JAIPUR -- BJP will appoint 50,000 'Vistaraks' in Rajasthan along the lines of RSS 'Pracharaks', with an aim to strengthen the party in the state, a senior leader said today.

"The 'Vistaraks' (expansionists), who will not be allowed to contest elections, would have to work outside their home districts to strengthen the party," BJP State President Ashok Parnami told reporters after the state executive meeting here.

Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje and members of the state executive were present during the meeting.

'Vistaraks' will work for a period of fortnight, one month, two months, three months, six months, one year and two years. During this, they will work to propagate the party and the government policies at the grass-root level, he said.

Selection process for the 'Vistaraks' has already begun.

In the meeting, the party passed a political resolution supporting the GST bill.

The opposition Congress is divided and running away from real issues and struggling for its existence, Parnami said, adding that the state is on the path of development.
