BJP’S PARIVARTAN YATRA TO CONCLUDE TODAY AT LUCKNOW
The BJP’s first pre-poll campaign in Uttar Pradesh will culminate in a mega roadshow in the State capital on Saturday when all four Parivartan Yatras—starting from different parts of the State last month—conclude in the City of Nawabs.
The event will be attended by party heavyweights like Union Minister Rajnath Singh, who will join BJP national vice-president and State in-charge Om Mathur, Union Minister Kalraj Mishra, Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti and State party chief Keshav Maurya, who will ride a modified rath called ‘Vijay Rath’ towards Hazratganj crossing.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to address a Maha Parivartan rally in Lucknow on Saturday but it was postponed and now he will address a rally in the city on January 2.
The Parivartan Yatra that started from Saharanpur on November 5 will enter Lucknow from Sitapur Road led by Legislature party leader Suresh Kumar Khanna. The second Yatra starting from Jhansi on November 6 will enter Lucknow via Hardoi Road and will be led by State chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, while Union Minister Kalraj Mishra Mishra will lead the rally the Yatra kicked off at Sonebhadra on November 8 and will enter Lucknow from Rae Bareli Road. Meanwhile, Uma Bharti will head the Yatra that started in Ballia on November 9 and will reach Lucknow through Faizabad Road.
All four Yatras will merge at Moti Mahal lawns around 1 pm and thereafter all four will move towards Hazratganj crossing led by Rajnath Singh in a roadshow. The Yatras will finally culminate at Hazratganj crossing, near the BJP State headquarters, where party leaders will garland the statues of Mahatma Gandhi, Bhimrao Ambedkar, Sardar Patel and Uda Devi.
