Himachal polls: Amit Shah visit to intensify BJP’s campaign, Modi will be its face



Shimla, Sep 12: The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) preparations in the poll-bound state of Himachal Pradesh are set to receive a shot in the arm on 22 September, when its national president Amit Shah visits the state.

The party’s core group held a two-day meeting last Thursday and Friday to finalise the modalities of Shah’s visit, as well as shortlist the first set of candidates. Union minister Thawar Chand Gehlot, who was recently named the party’s election in-charge, chaired the closed-door meeting.

In the current Assembly, the Congress holds 36 of the 68 seats while the BJP holds 26. But the BJP is confident of regaining power after five years of Congress rule, and has been in election mode since April, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a rally in Shimla.

The party has organised a series of Parivartan Yatras and Yuva Aakrosh rallies across the state, and Shah is expected to breathe new life into the campaign with a youth rally in Kangra on 22 September.
