NEW DELHI: Farmers will be focus of BJP’s campaign in Uttar Pradesh, for which the party has coined a new slogan promising crime and corruption government.

The focus on farmers will be highlighted during the BJP’s national executive meeting to be held in Allahabad on June 12 and 13, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also address a rally. Allahabad also happens to birthplace of first PM Jawaharlal Nehru, whose legacy, the BJP is fighting.

During the two meeting, all the initiatives concerning farmers taken by the Modi government will be highlighted and strategy prepared to make them find resonance with the people.

Sources said as the campaign for the state has already begin, and the macro strategy will roll out after the two-day meeting, the party has coined a new slogan - Na apradh, Na Bhrashtrachar, Abkibar Bajpa Sarkar (no crime, no corruption, this time BJP government).

Setting the ball rolling for the focus on farmers, Modi government had increased MSP for Kharif crops on Wednesday.

BJP President Amit Shah hailed the “pro-farmer and pro-poor” initiatives of the Narendra Modi government.

"The unprecedented increase in minimum support price (MSP) of Kharif crops by the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is another important step towards doubling of farm income and a gift to farmers. BJP welcomes this step for farmer welfare and lauds the Prime Minister on behalf of crores of farming families," Shah said in a statement.

Shah said this step of the government will help increase production of pulses, which in turn will help reduce dependence on imports and will save valuable foreign exchange.
