Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah is set to address a party workers convention in Uttar Pradesh’s (UP) Barabanki district today.
Mr Shah will reach the state capital from Uttarakhand by Baaj Express, state spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.
The meeting will be attended by booth workers of the party from 14 districts and Mr Shah is likely to give them tips on booth management, which he has been stressing, was crucial for electoral victories.
District president Avdesh Srivastava told IANS that water proof tents were put at the venue of the meeting which has a sitting capacity of 30,000 persons.
Meanwhile, security personnel were also deployed for the high-profile meeting, an official said adding that over 500 policemen would be on duty.
On Sunday, Mr Shah exhorted party workers in Haldwani to brace up for the 2017 polls in both Uttarakhand and UP and went on to say that past victories would be meaningless without wins in these two states.
