Senior BJP leader Amit Shah will hold a rally in western Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat on Sunday. He will also hold a public meeting in Amroha district.
The 403-member Uttar Pradesh Assembly is scheduled to go to the polls in seven phases. After February 10 voting, further rounds of polling will take place on February 14, February 20, February 23, February 27, March 3 and March 7. The votes will be counted on March 10.
According to a report by ANI, during the Baghpat rally, Shah would attempt to convince the Jat community voters who mostly dominate the area. A large number of Jat farmers had participated in the year-long agitation against the Centre’s, now withdrawn, three laws in Delhi.
Meanwhile, before the rallies, Amit Shah will release the party’s manifesto in the Lucknow office in the presence of chief minister Yogi Adityanath. Union ministers Anurag Thakur and Dharmendra Pradhan, deputy chief ministers Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma, UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev and senior minister Suresh Khanna, who heads the manifesto committee, would be present at the manifesto release.
