Confirming that Yogi Adityanath will campaign in Gujarat, state BJP president Jitu Vaghani said, "All chief ministers of our party across the country have been invited to campaign and Yogi ji will also be there."
State party spokesperson Bharat Pandya added that the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister campaigning in Gujarat would help the party immensely.
He said, "Yogi ji's work as Chief Minister is being discussed and appreciated not just at the national level but even at the international level. So, his coming to Gujarat for campaigning will definitely help the BJP."
Mr Pandya said Uttar Pradesh is the largest state in the country in terms of population and developments there have massive impact in all other states.
The opposition Congress asserted that the BJP was trying to play its old game of communal polarisation by calling Yogi Adityanath to canvass. Party spokesperson Himanshu Patel said it would not help the BJP this time around.
"People are fed up of the BJP rule and all issues like atrocities against Dalits, women, Patels, farmers and contract employees of the government will go against it," he said.
