PM has already addressed three rallies in the state, while the natl president has held 14. 

The Bharatiya Janata Party is leaving nothing to chance it seems, especially when it comes to Uttar Pradesh. In the countdown to the crucial Assembly election in the state early next year, the BJP plans to ensure that its key campaigner, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, visits the state at least once a month to address a party rally. 

"The PM has already addressed three rallies in the state — a farmers' rally in Bareilly in February, one in Saharanpur on May 26 to mark the completion of two years of the BJP-led government at the Centre and the third, of course, in Allahabad on June 13, post the party's national executive, said BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma. 

Pointing out that the ruling party has intensified its UP campaign, Sharma said BJP national president Amit Shah was also continuously travelling throughout the state and holding zone wise boothlevel workers meeting. "Amitji himself has addressed 14 small rallies since May. Like on Friday, he was in Basti, eastern UP, addressing a meeting of booth-level workers," said Sharma.
