BJP chooses Mayawati’s home ground for oath ceremony
Lucknow: The winds are flowing in the direction of the saffron party. Bharatiya Janata Party's win in Uttar Pradesh after a long gap of 14 years is a classic example of it.
The party seems ready to form government in UP with oath ceremony set to take place on March 19. The thing which is adding a 'masala' flavour to it is the venue of oath ceremony occasion, Smriti Upwan, which was constructed under the regime of former Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati.
The enthronement of BJP's CM on the Mayawati made Smriti Upwan has become one of the hottest topics in the politics of Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, the mystery of BJP's CM face is still topping the trend in the most populous state of the country.
The venue which was earlier used for Lucknow Mahotsav will now host the biggest event of the state.
Earlier, outgoing UP CM Akhilesh Yadav had taken his oath in the Lamatinere ground while Mayawati's oath ceremony was conducted at the Raj Bhavan.
The programme will be charmed with the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah.
