One of the BJPs spokesperson said, “Ratnakarji was party organisation secretary in Kashi and Gorakhpur regional units in UP before his elevation and deployment in Gujarat around a year back. As he has organisational network and knowledge about the demography of Varanasi region, he is holding meetings from mandal to region units every day. He also monitors the campaign programmes. For example, ahead of the PM’s address to booth functionaries, Ratnakarji monitored every minute of the arrangements.”
BJP is also talking to those candidates who have been unhappy with the decision of the party over ticket distribution. Dada Shyamdev Roy Chaudhary has been seven time MLA from Varanasi but he was not given the ticket in 2017. He was not part of the campaign but now has agreed to be the part of it.
