As Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav embarked on his ‘vikas rath yatra’, BJP state chief Keshav Prasad Maurya too flagged off one of the four ‘parivartan raths’ which will start its journey on November 5 from Saharanpur.

“BJP will take out four separate parivartan yatras from different parts of the state — Saharanpur, Jhansi, Sonebhadra and Ballia — covering vast parts of Uttar Pradesh and reach state capital Lucknow on December 24,” Maurya told reporters. Besides Saharanpur, yatras from Jhansi, Sonbhadra and Ballia will start on November 6, 8 and 9 respectively, he said, adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address a rally in Lucknow on the culmination of these yatras.

Senior party leaders including national president Amit Shah, central ministers Rajnath Singh, Kalraj Misra and Uma Bharti will address the yatras at various destinations, he said, adding that the raths will be equipped with all modern amenities.

Exuding confidence that people of the state were fed up with BSP and Samajwadi Party and have made up their mind to vote BJP to power, he claimed his party will win over 300 seats of the total 403 in next year’s Assembly elections.

    Declare the CM face there otherwise it will be repeat of Delhi and Bihar. People want to see who their cm candidate is. Akhilesh and Maya are famouse there already. But no strong BJP face there. Modi rally is good but along with him also cm candidate should be advertised there. This time hopefully the party will not repeat the mistake. Winning UP and Bihar are important because these are highly poted states will more consuencies than the rest.

      ALL THESE EFFORTS ARE USELESS IN WINNING UP ELECTION UNLESS COMPLETE CURB ON CORRUPTION IS ENSURED BEFORE UP ELECTIONS. BJP MUST ANNOUNCE ACTION PLAN WITH ANTI-CORRUPTION LAW PROVISIONING FOR SEVERE PUNISHMENT AND SEIZURE OF ETS. THIS ONE STEP WILL MAKE BJP VICTORIOUS IN UP AS WELL AS IN OTHER PLACES. BJP MUST CURB CORRUPTION ESPECIALLY IN BJP RULED STATES IMMEDIATELY. THIS ONE STEP WILL ENSURE BJP VICTORY ALL OVER THE COUNTRY SINCE THIS ONE ISSUE IS SUCKING BLOOD OF BILLIONS OF PEOPLE SINCE LAST 65 YEARS ON WHICH ALL POLITICIANS ARE UNITED.
