BJP president Amit Shah will return to basics as he kicks off the party’s preparations in Uttar Pradesh for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from January 30.

Shah will hold six meetings in as many regions of UP over ten days with the party’s booth-level presidents. “Each meeting will have the presence of about 25,000 booth-level presidents of the party in UP.

 It will be the political message from BJP’s national president, our topmost leader, to the booth president, who is the lowest-level leader,” BJP’s state vice-president and booth committee in-charge JPS Rathore told.

This strategy of focusing on the 1.4 lakh booths — Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot — was the brainchild of Shah when he was the in-charge of UP in the 2014 elections.

BJP built upon the idea during the 2017 polls, with PM Narendra Modi then holding a rally of all boothlevel workers in Lucknow.

 The party now feels motivating its booth-level workers is vital ahead of the battle for UP where the SP and BSP have struck an alliance.

 Shah will travel to Kanpur and Lucknow for two such meetings on January 30, to western UP for two more meetings on February 2 and 6, and chair meetings in Varanasi and Gorakhpur on February 8.

BJP has divided the state into six regions. Shah will be accompanied by chief minister Yogi Adityanath, state in-charge JP Nadda and BJP UP chief MN Pandey in these meetings.
