The Bharatiya Janata Party will be deploying one senior leader in each assembly constituency of Uttar Pradesh to oversee its work on the 2022 Assembly polls in the state. Senior leaders will be looking at organisational work and backroom activities in the different constituencies.

These leaders will include members of parliament from the BJP and senior leaders. These leaders will look at the organisational activities at the assembly level and will utilise their experience in steering the party through the challenges of polls in the state and in guiding the workers.

Many of these senior leaders have experience in assisting the state units in polls during the Lok Sabha polls as well. Leaders from other states will be coming to Uttar Pradesh to look at preparation and work for the polls being undertaken at assembly seats across the state.

Reportedly, among the leaders will be union ministers, MPs who come from UP, ministers from BJP ruled states, and senior leaders who have organisational experience as their strengths. They will be communicating with and closely working with party workers in the assembly constituencies.

They will directly look at work happening on the ground, including assembly seat clusters — that will be formed with four-five assembly seats each.

UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and BJP Uttar Pradesh general secretary (organization) Sunil Bansal are among leaders who were given different sets of responsibilities for poll activities in West Bengal.

BJP’s Jan Ashirwad Yatras that cover assembly constituencies in the state are led by its newly appointed Union ministers. The Yatras are generating a response from the party's opposition, which is criticising the move from the BJP to take out the Yatra, that will be covering 3,500 km in the state.
