Senior party leader and Union Home and Cooperation Minister Shri Amit Shah was also present in this meeting. The meeting was attended by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Shri Yogi Adityanath, State BJP Election In-charge and Union Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, State BJP President Shri Swatantra Dev Singh, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Keshav Prasad Maurya, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Dinesh Sharma, Apna Dal (Sone Lal) President Smt. Anupriya Patel, senior leader of her party and President of Nishad Party Dr. Sanjay Nishad and other senior leaders of the party were present. After the meeting, there was a joint press conference of the UP NDA, which was also addressed by BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda.


Addressing the press conference, BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda said that Bharatiya Janata Party has entered into NDA alliance with Apna Dal (Sone Lal) and Nishad Party in Uttar Pradesh. We also fought the Lok Sabha elections together. In the last two-three days, there has been a detailed discussion with the NDA allies. Bharatiya Janata Party, along with Apna Dal (Sone Lal) and Nishad Party will contest all the 403 Vidhan Sabha seats in the state and will win with an overwhelming majority.

Shri Nadda said under the leadership of Prime Minister of the country, Shri Narendra Modi, the Bharatiya Janata Party has run with the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas’ and Yogi Adityanath has brought this mantra to the ground in Uttar Pradesh.


He said Yogi Adityanath government has taken a new leap of development in Uttar Pradesh under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. The double engine government has given development momentum to Uttar Pradesh. Due to this there has been an upliftment in the standard of living of the poor, backward, dalits, women and youth at the grassroot level in the state and a new story of development has been visible in the state. Be it road connectivity, metro or air – everywhere, a new era of development has started in Uttar Pradesh. Uttar Pradesh has made great progress in the field of education, health, infrastructure, social indicators and especially medical education.


Shri Nadda said that Uttar Pradesh has become a major investment destination under the double engine government. Earlier investors were withdrawing their investment, today they are investing. Migration has stopped and poor welfare schemes have reached door to door. Be it Ujala Yojana, Ujjwala Yojana, Ayushman Bharat, Saubhagya Yojana, Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, Kisan Samman Nidhi, employment scheme for migrant laborers – every scheme has given a new impetus to development.


BJP National President said keeping the development of women and youth at the center, work has been done by the double engine government. In the last five years, the law and order has been strengthened under Yogi Adityanath government and the rule of law has been established. We are all familiar with the situation in UP five years ago. Earlier, the people of UP were forced to migrate, today the people who migrated are being migrated. During the SP-BSP regime, life used to stop after the evening. The kidnapping and Mafia Raj had gripped the whole of Uttar Pradesh. There used to be a nexus of mafia and government in the SP-BSP government. Mafia Raj has come to an end in Uttar Pradesh in five years. Today in Uttar Pradesh common man can live, work and move ahead in peace. What the BJP has said, it has fulfilled it. The thinking is honest, the work is effective.


Addressing the press conference, Apna Dal (Sone Lal) President Smt. Anupriya Patel said the journey of the alliance of Bharatiya Janata Party and Apna Dal (Sone Lal) has continuously progressed in a positive direction since 2014. This alliance has got immense trust of the people of Uttar Pradesh. The concept of social justice has further strengthened in the NDA’s double engine government. NDA’s alliance in UP is an alliance of development and social justice. Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the BJP-led NDA Government at the Center gave constitutional recognition to the OBC Commission. Along with this, reservation was also given in admission in Navodaya Vidyalaya, Kendriya Vidyalaya and Sainik School. The income limit of OBC creamy layer has also been increased. The demand for reservation under AIQ in NEET to OBC and EWS was being made for a long time, which was fully implemented by the Shri Narendra Modi government. Not only this, the Yogi Adityanath government has also resolved all the discrepancies in the reservation. Attacking the opposition, Mrs. Patel said that it is the Modi government which gave the states the right to determine the OBC list.


Nishad Party President Dr. Sanjay Nishad while addressing the press conference said that while becoming a participant of NDA, under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, we had taken the pledge to take the mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ to the bottom. We are moving forward on the same path of determination. I want to say with full confidence that NDA is going to win this time also in Uttar Pradesh with a huge majority. He said that while in power, Congress, SP, BSP – all used to represent Dalits, backwards and minorities– but never did these parties do anything for their welfare. Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, the government of double engine has developed without any discrimination. He said that NDA is getting blessings continuously in Uttar Pradesh. The way we had won in Uttar Pradesh in 2014, 2017 and 2019, this time also NDA is going to win with a huge majority. Every section of the state has got the benefit of every scheme of the government of double engine.
