The civic polls, to be held in three phases from November 22, is seen as a litmus test for the Yogi Adityanath government's popularity. The BJP came to the power in March with a landslide victory.
The Chief Minister will address a rally each in all the 16 poll-bound municipalities in the state.
"The Chief Minister will start his campaign from Ayodhya on November 14," party sources said.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had visited the disputed Ram Janmabhoomi site a day after the mega pre-Diwali celebrations organised by his government in the temple town last month leading to criticism from the opposition which accused him of playing the communal card.
During his visit, he said that Ayodhya represented his personal beliefs and opposition parties had no right to question him on it.
He had termed it an effort by him to protect and promote an age-old culture and bring the town on the world tourist map by ensuring all-round development.
Along with Ram Janmabhumi site, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had also visited Hanumangharhi, Digambar Akhara and Sugreev Qila temple during that visit.
The three-phase civic polls in Uttar Pradesh will be held on November 22, 26 and 29.
