BJP president said on Wednesday that the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be Prime Minister versus the rest.

Shah, while addressing a meeting of BJP booth workers, also said the BJP has rid Uttar Pradesh of goons and Chief Minister Yogi has tackled the land mafia problem in the state.

"Upar Modi, neechey Yogi (Modi as prime minister and as chief minister). This general election will be Modi versus the rest," he said, adding that this would be the poll scenario in Uttar Pradesh.

"The BJP has rid Uttar Pradesh of goons, of parivaarvad.

Yogi has tackled land mafia in Uttar Pradesh. Goons are now scared of cops," the BJP chief said. ALSO READ: BJP launches exercise to seek suggestions for its LS Election manifesto

Slamming the alliance between the SP and the BSP for the parliamentary polls, he said, "We will put Aligarh locks on their shop. BJP workers will put Aligarh locks on the shop of Buaa-Bhatija (Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav)." Aligarh is known for locks, now a dying industry.

Shah said, "Reporters often ask me that when buaa and bhatija have come together, then how 74 seats will be won in UP? I say that if you see the sea of party workers, you will come to know that from where 74 seats will come."

The BJP is different from other parties, as victory is guaranteed by the booth level workers and not by any one leader, he said.
