Lucknow: Mayor of Lucknow and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) vice president Dinesh Sharma today stated that Narendra Modi will be celebrating the festival of Dussehra in Lucknow.
He further went on to say that Modi would witness the famous ‘Ram Leela’ at Aishbagh and after that will stay back for the ‘Ravan Dahan’.
Dinesh Sharma said that Prime Minister Modi, after spending around two hours in the city, will fly back to New Delhi. He has no other engagements during his visit to Lucknow.
The move is being seen as an attempt by the Bharatiya Janata Party to attain a foothold in Uttar Pradesh which is scheduled to go to polls early next year.
