Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Uttar Pradesh on May 26 to mark the second anniversary of his government. The BJP has also prepared a schedule for senior ministers to ensure the “reach of the government’s programmes” at the ground level in the state which will go to polls next year.
Modi’s rally is likely to be organised in Saharanpur, in western UP, while party chief Amit Shah will attend multiple events in the state. “Most of the ministers will go to UP. They will address public meetings, press conferences, conventions of workers besides other events,” BJP general secretary Arun Singh said.
Using the anniversary celebrations as an opportunity to reach out to the masses and promote the government’s welfare programmes, the BJP has prepared tours for senior party leaders and ministers. Singh said the party has constituted about 30 teams of four to five members each, and each team will visit six places in as many states. Each team will include a cabinet minister, a minister of state, a party office-bearer and a member or two from the state unit.
