As the campaign in Lucknow Lok Sabha constituency drew to a close on Monday from where Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh is locked in a multi-cornered electoral tussle, it was the party’s prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi who appealed to the voters to make Mr. Singh victorious.
In an audio message to voters, Mr. Modi described Lucknow as the ‘karmabhoomi’ of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and assured them that the Modi-Rajnath team would work tirelessly to fulfil the dreams of Mr. Vajpyee. He also promised to bring all round development and glory to the city.
Mr. Modi had addressed a rally in the State Capital on March 2. Mr. Singh has shifted from Ghaziabad to contest from Lucknow.
