NISHAD Party, an ally of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Uttar Pradesh, dissolved its state and national executives.
Cabinet minister and national president of the party, Sanjay Nishad, announced the decision here on Wednesday on the first day of the NISHAD Party’s two-day state convention.
The step was taken to strengthen the party organisation in view of the 2024 Lok Sabha election. Nishad said the new executive committees would soon be constituted.
Office-bearers of various cells of the party, including the Rashtriya Nishad Ekta Parishad, Mahila Morcha and Yuva Morcha are taking part in the two-day convention.
Sanjay Nishad said a strategy had been formed for the Lok Sabha elections. In the first phase of the plan, the NISHAD Party will prepare for 27 fishermen-dominated seats of Uttar Pradesh. For the remaining 53 Lok Sabha constituencies, work will be done in the second and third phases, he said.
Nishad said that the party would contest the election in alliance with the BJP on its election symbol.
He said efforts would be made to ensure the victory of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance in more than 27 Lok Sabha constituencies located on the banks of rivers in Uttar Pradesh.
