The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set and buckled up for the state assembly elections for the India’s highest populated state of Uttar Pradesh (UP). The party’s ‘Parivartan rally’ kick started today from Saharanpur where BJP president Amit Shah addressed the public.

Saharanpur is a city and a Municipal Corporation in the state of Uttar Pradesh and is important from the point of view of electioneering as it is the administrative headquarters of Saharanpur District and the Saharanpur Division.

Hitting out directly on the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) and the ongoing family infighting of Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shah said that the ones who are entrusted with the task of development are busy insulting each other.

On the raging debate of One-Rank-One-Pension (OROP), the BJP president said, it is the BJP government which brought and implemented the OROP which the Congress government have beeen dragging for decades. While Shah expressed sympathies for the suicide of ex serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal, he also condemned the political opportunism sought over it by the opposition parties like the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and termed it disgusting.

Shah said that every women have the right to be treated equally as men, so customs like triple talaq should be abolished and Muslim women should be given equal status and should not be held back.

In UP the counting of state assembly constituencies starts with Saharanpur which means Saharanpur is serially the number one constituency, so it is only fitting that BJP start its campaign from Saharanpur. The ‘Parivartan Yatra’ that starts from Saharanpur will cover 109 constituencies over a time period of 50 days.
