NEWDELHI: Finally, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is likely to campaign in Uttar Pradesh. Speaking on the issue, Gujarat BJP president and a Modi confidant R C Faldu told the Express that the Chief Minister would campaign in Uttar Pradesh after February 12.

The Gujarat Chief Minister has been busy organising Sadbhavna Mission fasts across the state and it will end by February 12, said Faldu.

Modi, a huge crowd puller for the BJP, had skipped campaigning in Punjab and Uttarakhand giving rise to speculation that he might skip UP too.

Faldu’s statement on Tuesday is the first definitive indicator that Modi’s campaign plans for UP may go ahead as scheduled.

Modi is said to be cut up with the central leadership, particularly with party president Nitin Gadkari, reportedly for re-inducting Modi’s bête noire Sanjay Joshi into the party fold and giving him a prominent role in organising the party affairs in the state. “Modiji’s plans will be finalised by the Chief Minister’s Office in consultations with the central BJP. He may be presently pre-occupied with the Sadbhavna Mission fasts, but he will definitely go to UP,” said Faldu.
