After the meeting, Shah is scheduled to visit Moradabad for a meeting of the Lok Sabha core group at a local hotel in the west UP constituency where Samajwadi Party candidate Ruchi Veera is facing opposition from sitting MP ST Hasan’s supporters. BJP leaders said that Shah would use the meeting to strategise for the upcoming elections.

BJP leaders said that over the next couple of days, more rallies by Modi, as well as Shah, defence minister Rajnath Singh, and BJP chief JP Nadda, have been planned all across west UP. The seven-phased polls will commence on April 19, with 8 Lok Sabha constituencies going to polls in the first phase.

The west UP constituencies due for polls in the first two phases include Saharanpur, Kairana, and Muzaffarnagar (phase 1), and Amroha, Meerut, and Baghpat (phase II).
