There is still about one and a half years left in the Lok Sabha elections 2024, but preparations have started from the Bharatiya Janata Party. Former Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is also seen increasing the pace during this period. Recently he spent some time in Uttar Pradesh. The special thing is that under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, there is a large Muslim population in the BJP-ruled state.
Naqvi, who is considered to be an important Muslim face of BJP, is about to increase his political movement in UP. It is reported that he may soon visit Rampur, Lucknow, Allahabad and Moradabad. The share of the minority community in these areas is very high. During the UP visit, the former Union minister will increase contacts with Muslim organizations and organize ‘Samvad’ meetings.
