The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has formed a four- member committee to win back the confidence of the Brahmin community in the state. It is understood that the ruling party has taken this step to counter impressions being created by opposition parties in the poll bound State about the Brahmin community being dissatisfied with their performance.
The countdown to the U.P. Assembly polls has begun and the elections are expected early next year.
The decision to constitute the committee was taken following discussions the Brahmin leaders in the state had with Union Minister and state in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan and BJP national president J.P. Nadda.
Headed by Shiv Pratap Shukla, the committee comprises Mahesh Sharma, Abhijat Mishra and Ram Bhai Morakiya.
The committee head, Shiv Pratap Shukla said “Confusion is being spread among Brahmins by Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) that the BJP is neglecting their community. We will aim to take the work done by the BJP to the public and impress upon them the reality that it is the BJP which has worked for the Brahmins.”
Mr Mahesh Sharma, member of the committee voiced the confidence that the BJP will form government in Uttar Pradesh again with a victory margin better than the previous election.
