With Rahul Gandhi’s election rally raising the political heat in Gurgaon constituency, the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP), on Saturday, announced that its senior leaders will campaign for the ensuing Lok Sabha elections. Polling in Haryana is scheduled to be held on May 12.
The party said that the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh(UP) Yogi Adityanath will campaign for its Gurgaon candidate, Rao Inderjit Singh, by holding a rally on Monday at the grounds of Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) in Sector 5. It is the same place where the Congress held its rally.
BJP’s Gurugram coordinator, Lakshman Singh Yadav, said that the UP chief minister, who will address a rally on May 7, has a strong appeal among urban voters.
Before him, senior BJP leader and union minister for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi will hold a series of meetings in the Mewat region. Singh said that Naqvi will reach Firozepur Zirka at 10am on Sunday by helicopter and thereafter hold an election meeting at the Ramlila Ground in the town.
From there, he would go to Nageena block, where an election meeting is scheduled at 1pm. Thereafter, the minister will hold a meeting in Malab village on the Alwar-Delhi main road.
Union home minister Rajnath Singh also would campaign for Inderjit Singh in Bhondsi and the surrounding areas to engage with Rajput voters, party officials said.
“We are hoping to win 10 out of 10 seats in Haryana and a visit of three senior leaders will motivate the party workers and voters in Gurgaon,” said Yadav.
Captain Ajay Yadav, the Congress candidate from Gurgaon, however, said that the BJP had no agenda except for pushing its divisive politics.
“There has been no development in Gurgaon and Mewat in the last five years. We will bring back development if voted to power,” said Yadav.
