Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the membership drive for the BJP from his constituency Varanasi today. The drive coincides with the birth anniversary of the party founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee.

This will be his second visit to the temple town after his party clinched a spectacular win in the Lok Sabha elections.
UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath along with BJP Working President J P Nadda and Head of the membership drive Shivraj Singh Chauhan will also be present in the function.  

He will address around 5,000 party workers at Deendayal Upadhyaya Trade Facilitation Centre in Bada Lalpur, where he will launch the membership drive and felicitate some of the party workers.

"On the Jayanti of our inspiration, Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee, the @BJP4India Membership Drive will begin. I will be joining the programme in Kashi to mark the same. This drive will further connect people from all walks of life with the BJP family. It will strengthen our party," PM Modi tweeted.
