Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is all set to sound poll begul ahead of assembly elections as tomorrow he is scheduled to flag off BJP’s ‘Vijaya Yatra’ in election-bound Kerala. The ‘Vijaya Yathra’, will be launched in the state with an aim to expand BJP’s footprint in South India ahead of assembly polls which are to be contested later this year.
The rath yatra will reportedly start from Kasaragod on Feb 21 and will culminate at Thiruvananthapuram around the first week of March.
The yatra, which is to be launched by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, will also see several cabinet ministers and top post holders of the BJP leading the rath-yatra throughout the event.
“It is more on lines of Jan Raksha yatra that we took out led by Amit Shah. However, that was against the political violence against our karyakartas and people of the state. Vijaya Yathra is to sound the bugle of polls. And to win them,” said a senior member of BJP Kerala unit.
Earlier this month, BJP national president, JP Nadda had paid a two day visit to the poll-bound state to review organisational activities in wake of upcoming elections.
In 2016 Kerala assembly elections out of 140 seats, BJP had won one seat, Nemom. The senior leaders believe that the party is likely to improve its performance in the upcoming elections, which are to be contested in April.
