Unlike other parties, the BJP is taking the civic polls seriously and besides CM Yogi Adityanath and his two deputies, senior party leaders are extensively campaigning in the state.

 
While the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have left the campaigning to second-rank leaders, the Congress has engaged senior leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Raj Babbar and MP Pramod Tewari to address election meetings in selected cities of the state.
