At noon, a call centre that seats 20 is buzzing as several young people make phone calls to verify members of over 20,000 local party committees, crucial to the BJP for managing the mammoth Uttar Pradesh elections. In the next room on the social media and IT floor at the BJP headquarters in Lucknow, five youngsters are in charge of the party's UP Twitter handle round the clock. Photos and videos of campaigns across the state are being posted after being vetted by senior party leaders.
This is the BJP's Uttar Pradesh election war room and what Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, known for his deft use of social media to woo voters, will find himself up against once he has extricated himself from a bitter family feud to start electioneering.
"The only other party in the social media race in UP is Akhilesh's," says Aman Rajput, 22, an Arts graduate who has been with the BJP since the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and is one of the people manning the Twitter handle.
"One striking thing is all the photos of his development work that Akhilesh Yadav posts. When we form government in UP, we will put up more and even better ones," Mr Rajput adds.
Uttar Pradesh will vote in seven phases from February 11. Votes will be counted on March 11.
