Union Minister Kaushal Kishore, who is contesting the Mohanlalganj seat in Lucknow, also filed his nomination on Monday.

Meanwhile, huge crowds welcomed the BJP leaders with slogans of “Abki baar, 400 paar”, “Jai Shri Ram” and “Har, Har Mahadev.”

People showered petals on the leaders and CM Adityanath was also seen controlling the traffic through a microphone as he asked the police to make way for an ambulance.

Along the route, various trader organisations felicitated the Union Minister who is seeking his third-consecutive term in Lok Sabha from Lucknow.

Lucknow has been held by the BJP continuously since 1991. Former Prime Minister, late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, won this seat five times since 1991. He was succeeded by Lalji Tandon who won the seat in 2009. Thereafter, Rajnath Singh won the seat in 2014 and 2019.

The BJP’s Lucknow Metropolitan President Anand Dwivedi said, “A number of street meetings have been organised to send the message of the work done by the BJP MP in Lucknow. The work of distributing family slips is also being done. Party workers are distributing leaflets about the development works of the Lucknow MP.”

Lucknow will go to the polls along with 13 other constituencies on May 20 in the fifth of the seven-phased 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
