With the election fervour scaling up, BJP-Shiv Sena brought in Uttar Pradesh’s Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma while the Congress roped in wrestler Narsingh Yadav to woo north Indian voters.

“North Indians are politically active and aware citizens. In Maharashtra, they voted for the BJP during Lok Sabha polls, and then again during Assembly elections. We need their support once again to take our cause of development forward,” Sharma told The Indian Express.
