UP CM Yogi Adityanath unveils Kalyan Singh’s statue ahead of 2024 elections, with BJP eyeing Lodh voters.

In view of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has started wooing the Lodh community from Uttar Pradesh. The statue of late former CM Kalyan Singh, one of the biggest leaders of the society, has been installed in Lucknow. It was unveiled by UP CM Yogi Adityanath on the occasion of Singh’s first death anniversary on Sunday.

The Lodh community accounts for 8% of the state’s population. The BJP will also run a public awareness campaign in UP, highlighting how it is the only party that talks about the interests of the Lodh voters.

As part of its strategy, the BJP government has included Kalyan Singh’s grandson Sandeep in the Yogi Adityanath cabinet as the Minister of Basic Education. On the other hand, Kalyan Singh’s son Rajveer Singh is a BJP MP.

The leadership is also keeping a close watch on all the castes of Uttar Pradesh and has intensified the work at every level to attract them, be it by giving representation in the government or organization.

Kalyan Singh Connection

BJP strategists have carefully crafted a plan centered around Kalyan Singh’s legacy. A 9-feet tall bronze statue of Singh has been installed at the Cancer Institute in Lucknow. This will be the first statue of the leader installed in Uttar Pradesh. This statue has been prepared at a cost of more than 30 lakh rupees.

CM Adityanath was present at the unveiling along with senior leaders and ministers of his cabinet, Singh’s aides and prominent leaders of the Lodh community.

Through this event BJP is trying to give the message that BJP always respected Kalyan Singh. Even though Singh left the party citing his displeasure, he later returned and was made the governor.
