New Delhi: With just three days to go for the BJP's national executive meeting in Allahabad, speculation escalated that home minister Rajnath Singh could play the "lead role" in the party's campaign for the Uttar Pradesh polls. BJP Party is likely to project Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh as the party's main face for 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections.
