Prime Minister Narendra Modi is gearing up for the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections, with the inaugural electoral rally set to take place in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh, on January 25, as revealed by sources within the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
This pivotal rally in Bulandshahr marks the initiation of the election campaign for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, closely following the Ram Lalla Pran Pratishtha Samaroh in Ayodhya on January 22.
Eagerly involved in the preparations, party workers and BJP leaders anticipate a substantial turnout in this western Uttar Pradesh city.
BJP’s Strategic Focus on Western Uttar Pradesh
Currently holding eight out of 14 seats in western Uttar Pradesh, the BJP aims to overturn the results of the 2019 elections, where it faced defeats in six constituencies. Prime
Minister Modi is reportedly determined to reverse these outcomes in the upcoming 2024 elections. The campaign will commence in Bulandshahr, aiming to reconnect with voters and supporters in previously contested areas, sharing the key to victory.
The BJP confidently projects an attendance of around five lakh people at PM Modi’s rally in Bulandshahr. The Prime Minister’s scheduled public meeting in Navada village on January 25 is expected to garner support, featuring a shooting range field in the Meerut Commissionerate.
Dynamic Political Alliances Unfolding
In the political arena, a day after announcing an alliance with the Rashtriya Lok Dal for the Lok Sabha polls, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Akhilesh Yadav declared that further discussions with Congress are in the pipeline to finalize a seat-sharing formula in the state, emphasizing the necessity for a robust INDIA alliance.
Conducting a meeting in Lucknow with party leaders, including former MPs, former MLAs, and former MLCs, Yadav prioritized winnability as the criterion for decisions on seats. He urged party workers to ensure the registration of voters supporting the party in the new voter list. Yadav accused the BJP government in the state of removing names of some party workers from the list.
Intricate Negotiations: Congress and SP Seat-sharing Talks
As the Lok Sabha polls are anticipated in April-May this year, the Congress and the SP are actively engaged in seat-sharing discussions, reflecting the broader dynamics of alliances shaping up in the run-up to the elections.
