Bhartiya Janta Party on Thursday announced the roadmap for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections due in 2017. The highlight of the BJP campaign will be four ‘Parivartan Yatras’ to be launched next month from Saharanpur, Lalitpur, Sonebhadra and Ballia.
BJP National President Amit Shah will flag-off the yatras, during which party’s senior national and state leaders will remain present, a senior party leader said, adding the yatra will culminate with a ‘Parivartan Sabha’ in Lucknow on December 24.
“’Parivartan Yatras’ which will begin from November 5, will culminate with a ‘Parivartan Sabha’ in Lucknow on the eve of 92nd birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on December 24,” state BJP president Keshav Prasad Maurya said.
