In the run-up to the 2014 election,Varun Gandhi will be BJP’s answer to Rahul Gandhi,the youth face of Congress,and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav,the youth face of the Samajwadi Party in UP.

BJP chief Rajnath Singh has given him responsibility to engage youths across India.

At a BJP rally in Barelly on Wednesday,Rajnath said,“Now we cannot run much. So I am giving the responsibility of carrying forward the organisation to youths. I expect Varun will move across the country and associate youths with the party.”

The stature of Varun in the party is increasing with Rajnath at the helm. He was national secretary former party chief Nitin Gadkari’s team and Rajnath elevated him as general secretary.
