With an eye on the 2017 Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, today said it will launch four 'Yatras' next month from Saharanpur, Lalitpur, Sonebhadra and Ballia.

National President will flag-off the yatras, during which party's senior national and state leaders will remain present, a senior party leader said, adding the yatra will culminate with a 'Sabha' in Lucknow on December 24.

"'Yatras' which will begin from November 5, will culminate with a 'Parivartan Sabha' in Lucknow on the eve of 92nd birthday of former Prime Minister on December 24," state president Keshav Prasad Maurya said.

First yatra will start from Saharanpur on November 5, second from Lalitpur on November 6, third from Sonebhadra on November 8 and fourth from Ballia on November 9, Maurya said, adding BJP national president Amit Shah, senior national and state ministers will remain present at the start of all the yatras.

He said the party will soon organise a meeting of backward caste community members in two constituencies.

BJP has also decided to hold a youth and woman conference all over the state in which workers upto the booth level will participate.
