Will Rajnath be BJP’s face in UP elections?
With just three days to go for BJP’s national executive meet in Allahabad, speculation escalated that home minister Rajnath Singh could play the “lead role“ in the party’s campaign for the UP polls.
Although the party has steadfastly refrained from spelling out if it plans to project anyone as its CM candidate, there was insistent buzz that the brass could consider giving Singh, a former UP CM, a prominent role in the campaign even if it does not necessarily declare him to be its choice for the top political office in the state.
The party will tread cautiously in UP because of the caste divisions which define the state.
