Dehradun, January 4
BJP president Amit Shah will visit Dehradun on February 2 to enthuse party cadres in view of the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, a party functionary said on Friday.
Shah will address the BJP’s ‘Trishakti Sammelan’ here on February 2 to gear up party workers at the booth level for the General elections, state BJP president Ajay Bhatt said.
“His visit will definitely enthuse the cadres and inspire them to do their best to ensure that the party repeats its performances in the Lok Sabha and Assembly poll,” Bhatt said.
Shah’s visit to Uttarakhand comes after the BJP faced defeat in three of its bastions — Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.
The BJP faces the challenge of retaining all five Lok Sabha seats in the poll, which is likely to be a high-stakes battle for the party that swept to power in Uttarakhand in 2017, winning 57 out of a total of 70 Assembly seats. —PTI
