Rajnath Singh, Home Minister, one of the most prominent BJP leaders from U.P. is expected to play an important role in BJP’s campaigning for assembly elections that are going to take place in U.P. next year.
As per the sources, BJP is planning to portray Singh, as the main face of the party in the upcoming UP elections as he is an accomplished politician and a local leader, he can easily take on the leaders like Mulayam Singh Yadav of Samajwadi Party and Mayawati of Bahujan Samaj Party.

Sources further added that Rajnath Singh probably will be given the charge of the campaign committee in UP and also is expected to be the chief ministerial candidate. Rajnath Singh, has been the chief minister of UP before and doesn’t look very interested to be the CM again.
BJP also has to get its caste situation right , as it is very important in UP politics. Singh is presented as a Rajput leader that might upset the Brahmin voters of BJP , therefore “balancing act may be called for later in its choice of chief minister”.
