BJP says it is not unduly disturbed   following Priyanka Gandhi’s entry into the political arena of Uttar Pradesh ahead of Lok Sabha poll due to be held in April-May. Asked to comment  on the  anointment of  AICC President’  younger sibling  as the General  Secretary  of Eastern Uttar Pradesh, the  Spokesman said  the BJP feels the increase in Congress “credibility” in the State would actually help the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. The Congress party’s strategy would impact the SP-BSP alliance and not the ruling BJP. Asked about whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi would contest from more than one seat, they said “The BJP Parliamentary Board would take a decision if it helps the party”.
