BJP to launch UP poll  campaign from Allahabad
The BJP is all set to launch its campaign for next year’s Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh from here.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and top BJP leaders are meeting here for a two-day brainstorming session to assess the performance of the NDA government and plan strategies for the elections.

Uttar Pradesh had helped the BJP win a majority in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.But first it has to battle the internal tussle in the state unit over the projection of a chief ministerial candidate, a strategy that helped it win big in Assam.

BJP Lok Sabha member Varun Gandhi, HRD Minister Smriti Irani and Lok Sabha member from Gorakhpur Yogi Adityanath are being talked about as probable chief ministerial candidates, though the party has maintained silence on the issue.

Posters of 38-year-old Varun dotted the roads and round-abouts in the city, perhaps outnumbering those of state BJP President Keshav Prasad Maurya.
