Rajnath’s Welcome Drama
Exactly seven months after replacing Nitin Gadkari as BJP president on January 22, former chief minister Rajnath Singh was finally welcomed in Uttar Pradesh. On August 22, Rajnath finally visited Lucknow, where he was given a small reception by party workers. After becoming the national president, Rajnath has announced and cancelled his trip to Lucknow at least five times. The sixth time Rajnath said he would visit Lucknow on June 26. He kept his word, but sadly no grand preparations were made given the Uttarakhand disaster.
