In a rally supporting Singh, CM Yogi Adityanath praised the advancements in India’s defense sector and highlighted Lucknow’s role in manufacturing BrahMos missiles. “Lucknow has become a key hub for India’s defense manufacturing. The BrahMos missiles produced here ensure our nation’s security and instill fear in our adversaries,” Adityanath remarked. He also mentioned the revival of the Gomti River, citing Singh’s recent inauguration of a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) for the river.

As Lucknow prepares to vote in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha elections on May 20, Rajnath Singh faces a contest against Samajwadi Party candidate Ravidas Mehrotra.
