This was the first state executive meeting of the BJP after the assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.
“With the help of people and by dint of our hard work during Covid, we got better results in the assembly polls. In the 2024 general elections, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we have to march ahead with the target of winning 75 seats in Uttar Pradesh,” he said.
Congratulating Modi for completing eight years as prime minister, Adityanath said with the 2024 roadmap, the BJP will succeed in its achieving its target.
