Shah's Lucknow tour was supposed to be a one-day affair initially. Later, Shah extended the plan and will assess the party's position in the crucial state which send 80 members to the Lok Sabha. According to one BJP leader, Shah needs to elaborately analyse the party's ground-level situation and for that he is required to interact with the senior leaders.
Shah will be accompanied by three other co-in-charges, including Trivendra Singh Rawat, Rameshwar Chaurasiya and Satyendra Kushwaha.
Shah will meet senior leader Lalji Tandon and Vinay Katiyar at their residences and Keshari Nath Tripathy at the party office. He is also likely to speak with Om Prakash Singh, Kalraj Mishra and former chief minister Kalyan Singh.
The man known to be a close aide of Narendra Modi, under whose leadership the party will contest the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, will also meet leaders who have been complaining of being ignored. He will meet party workers and hold a meeting with the party MLAs.
