Ahead of Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh due early next year, state BJP will launch a 10-day long 'new voters registration programme' starting 1 September with an aim to add new electorates in the voters' list.

"As per the data of the Election Commission, 70 lakh youths did not have voter cards till 1 January. The party will launch a 10-day programme for their registration," BJP state president Keshav Prasad Maurya said after a meeting of party office-bearers.

He said that to highlight the achievements of Narendra Modi's government and "failures" of SP regime, four 'parivartan yatras' will be taken out covering all 403 Assembly constituencies in the state.

Maurya said that the party would also organise youth and women 'sammelans' to "expose" the state government's "failure in providing jobs to youths and security to women." He said the state government has "failed" to provide relief to flood victims and that BJP would send relief material to them.
