New Delhi (25.10.2021): A Muslim leader of the Conservative Party of the UK has been entrusted with the responsibility of selecting around a dozen Muslim candidates to be fielded in the 2022 Assembly elections by the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. This is an attempt at an outreach program towards Muslims. The person is not only interviewing the candidate but visiting the constituencies where Muslims are likely to be considered for the post. The BJP has plans to offer 10-12 seats for Muslims in the forthcoming elections. The person who has been given the responsibility is of Indian origin and is politically active in the UK. Now, he is working in the state and his decision will be almost final.
