The spokesman further said that these ministers would cover 23 Lok Sabha constituencies, meet people and take their suggestions.

They would also inform them of the schemes rolled out by the National Democratic Alliance government for their welfare and also expose the opposition parties, especially the Congress for stalling the parliament.

“The people who never engaged in dialogue are now ensuring that discussions do not take place,” Pathak added.

Other ministers who would be touring Uttar Pradesh are Ram Kripal Yadav (Kushinagar and Deoria), Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan (Saharanpur), HRD Minister Smriti Irani (Amethi), Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Vijay Sampla, who would camp in Bahraich and Giriraj Singh who would be travelling to Mathura and Faizabad.

The move is being seen as a move by the BJP national leadership as an attempt to connect with the party workers and the masses after some reports suggested that the party was fast losing its ground.

The BJP had won 71 seats on its own and two were won by its ally Apna Dal in the Lok Sabha polls in 2014.
