It may be termed as an effort to consolidate Dalit votes ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath is going to hold chaupal’s (public meetings) in Dalit dominated areas of the state.
The first such chaupal will be organised on Monday in Pratapgarh district, where the CM will review law and order situation and development projects.
CM Yogi is also expected to pay a surprise visit to tehsils, police stations, hospital and slums; post this he will be meeting local public representatives as well.
Under the scheme ‘Gram Swarajya Yojna’, CM Yogi will be holding the chaupal at Kandhaipur Madhupur village in Pratapgarh district.
The meeting will be held at the house of a Dalit, Dayaram Saroj. Yogi will also inaugurate an upper primary school in the village on April 24.>
