Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his deputy Dinesh Sharma, and a number of his ministerial colleagues were likely to reach out to people in different districts.“Some Union Ministers likely to be in the state are Rajnath Singh (in Lucknow), Manoj Sinha (Aligarh on June 13), VK Singh (Varanasi on June 9), Satyapal Singh (Allahabad on June 10), Santosh Gangwar (Agra on June 14), Mahesh Sharma (Faizabad), Shiv Pratap Shukla (Bareilly on June 11) and Krishnaraj (Firozabad on June 7),” Amarpal Maurya, UP co-ordinator of the Vishesh Sampark Abhiyaan, told PTI.

He said Adityanath would be going to Gorakhpur, his own citadel, and Varanasi, the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, besides the State capital which is represented in Lok Sabha by Rajnath Singh. Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma was likely to be in Varanasi, while national General Secretary Anil Jain was likely to be in Kanpur, adding that even party office bearers of the State unit were assigned tasks under the campaign.
