BJP's Brahmin leaders from poll-bound Uttar Pradesh on Monday met party president J P Nadda, a day after holding a brainstorming session on reaching out to the crucial vote segment in the state.

Various issues concerning the community were discussed at length during the meeting with Nadda.

On Sunday, more than a dozen Brahmin leaders of the BJP from Uttar Pradesh held a marathon meeting at state in-charge, Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan's residence to chalk out a strategy for reaching out to community members.

According to sources, the party has formed a committee comprising BJP's Rajya Sabha chief whip Shiv Pratap Shukla, party leader Abhijat Mishra, former national secretary and Gujarat MP Ram Bhai Mokariya and Mahesh Sharma to reach out to Brahmin members of the community.

The party's Brahmin leaders, including Union Minister Ajay Mishra, whose son has been arrested in connection with the Lakhimpur Kheri violence, will reach out to community members in their respective regions, eventually touching all 403 constituencies of the state.

Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh are scheduled for early next year.
