Ahead of UP polls, BJP on Thursday announced a 17,000 Kilometer long ‘Parivartan Yatra’ in the state from Sunday.
Party National General Secretary Bhupender Yadav and Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad made this announcement at the party headquarter in Delhi. They announced that Parivartan Yatra will start from Saharanpur and end in 192 working days.
Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections are due early next year.
“BJP’s Parivartan Yatra will start from Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh on November 5. It will cover 17,000 km in 192 working days,” Yadav said at the joint press briefing.
Several Union Ministers, top party leaders, and Party President Amit Shah will address a gathering as the yatra proceeds.
Prasad said that BJP’s aim is to convert “hopeless Uttar Pradesh into a state of expectations”.
The minister also reminded of the good governance of BJP Chief Ministers Kalyan Singh and Rajnath Singh in Uttar Pradesh and stressed on eliminating fear and corruption from the state.
“Uttar Pradesh needs good governance, development. For investment, corruption and fear must be eliminated from the state. Uttar Pradesh remembers the days of good governance under the leadership of BJP Chief Ministers Kalyan Singh Ji and Rajnath Singh ji,” Prasad said.
“Poorna Bahumat, Sampoorna Vikas, BJP Par Hai Vishwash” will be the slogan of the party in Uttar Pradesh, the minister informed.
