Modi’s rally comes on the day when ruling Samajwadi Party is struggling to keep its men together.

Although it was the top political party in UP in the 1990s, the BJP suffered a sharp decline in the decade that followed when the state’s political scene came to be dominated by regional satraps Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati.

Prime Minister Modi stepped out of his home state Gujarat and fought from UP where the party secured a massive mandate by winning 71 of the 78 it had contested.

Later in the day, Prime Minister is also visiting his Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi where he secured a resounding margin of 3.71 lakh votes in 2014.

As many as 100 CCTV cameras have been installed in the vicinity of the DLW premises while overhead water tanks have been transformed into watch towers with security personnel perched atop.

The elite Special Protection Group (SPG), which is directly responsible for the Prime Minister’s security, has been camping in the city since Friday.
