Banda LS Candidate Submits Report Over UP Performance


After the unexpected results of the Lok Sabha elections 2024, the Bharatiya Janata Party, which suffered a major dent in Uttar Pradesh, has reportedly formed a task force to assess the party’s performance in the Yogi Adityanath-ruled state. Meanwhile, BJP leader and candidate from Banda Lok Sabha seat in UP, RK Singh Patel claimed that the ex-MPs and MLAs of BJP “tried their best to cause damage to the elections”.

“On my seat, ex-MPs and MLAs of BJP protested…When they were not given tickets for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, they tried their best to cause damage in the elections…Ex MLAs and MPs worked together to cast votes in favour of a particular caste,” Patel stated, adding that he has submitted the report for the same.

Amid the ongoing deliberations on the loss of the saffron party, UP BJP is focused on finding out the reasons that led to the party’s defeat in the state. The 60-member task force will visit each Lok Sabha constituency and submit its report to the UP BJP president in about a week, a report by India TV noted.
