Viewing the Delhi Assembly polls as the "semi-finals" to the crucial Lok Sabha elections, BSP Chief Mayawati will address five rallies in New Delhi to firm the party's foray in the national capital.

Mayawati's right-hand man Satish Chandra Mishra will camp in the city during the election days to monitor the campaign while entire ministers of the Uttar Pradesh cabinet will be assigned particular constituencies to help candidates decide on strategy.

"Mayawati is giving special importance to Delhi polls and she will be attending five rallies in the capital. Further details like where these rallies will be organised are being worked out," a senior BSP leader told PTI.

The party has already announced candidates for 68 out of the 70 Assembly seats so that candidates, most of them first timers, get acquainted with the constituency. After reviewing the work of candidates, the party had also changed some of its candidates for "non-performance".

The leader said UP ministers will be assigned particular constituencies on the basis of the caste combinations in the segment so that they can win over "particular" communities.
