The BJP has formed a four-member committee in an effort to reach out to the Brahmin community in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the assembly election early next year. Top Brahmin leaders from the saffron party will be touring all 403 assembly constituencies in the state as part of an outreach programme.

The committee comprises Rajya Sabha chief whip Shiv Pratap Shukla, party leader Abhijat Mishra, former national secretary and Gujarat MP Ram Bhai Mokariya and Dr Mahesh Sharma. Ajay Mishra Teni, minister of state home, whose son is an accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, will also be involved in the outreach programme. He, too, was present at the meeting.

The move is being considered significant as the Brahmin community forms the 17 per cent of the voter base in Uttar Pradesh. Sources said the BJP wanted to send across the message that it had worked relentlessly for the welfare of the Brahmin community.
