Gujarat Assembly Polls: Yogi Adityanath to campaign for BJP candidates

Debjit Mukherjee: UP CM Yogi Adityanath will on Friday begin campaigning for BJP candidates in Gujarat assembly elections, voting for which would be held on December 1 and 5.

On his first day of campaigning, Adityanath will address three election rallies in Morbi, Bharooch and Surat in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stated a press release.

The CM will also be campaigning in bypolls to Mainpuri Lok Sabha and Rampur and Khatauli (Muzaffarnagar) assembly seats. The by-election to Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat was necessitated by the death of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav while the by-election to the Rampur seat was necessitated following disqualification of Samajwadi Party leader and MLA Azam Khan.

BJP MLA Vikram Saini’s disqualification led to by-election in Khatauli.

Yogi Adityanath had recently campaigned in the Himachal Pradesh assembly election and addressed 16 poll rallies there in five days.
