UP all set to celebrate saffron Holi courtesy Modi magic
Lucknow/New Delhi [India], Mar. 11 (ANI): With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) crossing the halfway mark in Uttar Pradesh and leading in 278 seats of the 403-member assembly, celebrations have begun and it seems the politically crucial state is all geared up for a saffron Holi this time. The BJP workers have begun celebrations in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's parliamentary constituency Varanasi and the state capital Lucknow. The early trends clearly indicate that Uttar Pradesh has yet again voted for Prime Minister Modi, who had come under sharp criticism post the November 8 demonetisation drive. In Prime Minister Modi's parliamentary constituency Varanasi, the BJP workers were seen dancing and celebrating outside the party office. "Bharat Mata Ki Jai, Bharat Mata Ki Jai, Modi-Modi, Modi Zindabad," chanted the party workers as they played Holi with saffron colour and distributed sweets to the passerbys. Similar scenes were witnessed in BJP's Lucknow office situated near the Vidhan Sabha. The BJP workers were seen dancing and celebrating, shouting slogans of "BJP Zindabad, BJP Zindabad" and "Modi Zindabad".
