PM Modi may visit UP more often from October
New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi is expected to travel to Uttar Pradesh more often from October where the assembly polls are due next year, to boost BJP’s election campaign. Since April, PM Modi has travelled to Uttar Pradesh at least once a month on an average.
In this year’s Uttar Pradesh assembly polls BJP is banking on Modi’s popularity to win. Earlier, in 2014 general elections, BJP won 71 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats.
The party has not yet declared a candidate for the CM’s post. Finding a face for the CM’s post in Uttar Pradesh before the assembly polls has become a tricky affair for the BJP, which has several aspirants but only few having state appeal. Given the current circumstances, Modi is BJP’s best bet to bank on.
