New Delhi: Girding its loins for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called upon its party leaders and members from neighbouring states to take charge over the election campaign.

Teams under the leadership of party stalwarts from Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Maharashtra have been assigned with the task of consolidating votes in favour of the BJP. The party leaders from these states have already been stationed in UP, while the other teams who have recently joined the camp, will participate in campaigning and management of the booths.

As the assembly elections are round the corner, BJP President, Nitin Gadkari is himself keeping a hawk’s eye on the election management. Sanjay Joshi and incharge general secretary Narendra Singh Tomar are handling important responsibilities of the camp.

They have prepared the framework for the execution of election related duties in six regions of the state and are working on strategies to mark a victory in the elections.

The prime motto of the party to introduce teams from other states is to prevent resentment within the party in any of the constituency. According to the sources, maximum number of party workers from Bihar and Madhya Pradesh have joined the campaign responsibility in UP. The team from Madhya Pradesh has taken charge over Bundelkhand region and its vicinity.

On the other hand, the team from Bihar is handling party work in the Poorvanchal region. In the western side, party workers from Rajasthan will take the command. Party members from Maharashtra have joined leaders in Lucknow to arrange resources for the camp.
