To take on the SP-BSP Alliance in Uttar Pradesh, The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is set to intensify its campaign in the state for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections by lining up a number of events involving Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party National President Amit Shah to reach its voter base in the state that sends 80 Parliamentarians to the Lok Sabha.

Formation of the Samajwadi Party (SP)Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) alliance and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics as the new All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary for UP (East), has forced the Bhartiya Janta Party to take steps to plan a series of events for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP Chief Amit Shah.
