The UP CM is in the city to participate in the ongoing BJP's National Executive Committee headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with the party's senior leaders, Chief Ministers, union Ministers, and other senior BJP leaders from across the country .
It may be recollected that the Bhagyalakshmi temple was in the eye of a storm after the UP CM had campaigned for BJP candidates during Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections and urged voters to vote for the party and transform Hyderabad into Bhagyanagar which was the name of the city before it was renamed to its present name.
Union Minister Amit Shah had also offered prayers here before undertaking GHMC election campaign in November 2020.
