Bhopal: With an aim to score a hat-trick in the Assembly polls due later this year, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan will embark on a `Janashirwad Yatra` from July 22.
The `Janashirwad Yatra` will commence from Ujjain on July 22 and culminate in Bhopal on October 4 during which it will traverse through all the 230 Assembly seats in the state, senior BJP leader and in-charge of the yatra, Nandkumar Singh Chouhan, told reporters.
Answering a question, Chouhan said that during a meeting to review the preparations for the yatra, no discussion took place on the issue of inviting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for taking part in it.
On the issue of BJP vice president Uma Bharti`s role, he said, "Bharti is our party`s national leader and her services will be utilised wherever her presence is required."
Another BJP vice president, Prabhat Jha has been given an important task of deciding the yatra`s contours and arrangements, he said.
During the yatra, Chouhan will rest for two days in a week and during that time only he will also discharge his official duties, he said.
Described the ongoing `Parivartan Yatra` of Congress as a `damp squib`, Chouhan said his party is not over-confident and therefore it is organising the Janashirwad Yatra.
