It was earlier reported that Zadaphia would be the Uttar Pradesh in-charge. So far, the BJP has appointed three co-charges for the state.
The BJP on January 5 appointed Union ministers J P Nadda and Piyush Goyal as Lok Sabha election in-charge for Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu respectively, days after it made similar appointments for 17 states.
Party sources also clarified that Gordhan Zadaphia, a Gujarat leader who was a critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi before returning to the BJP, would be one of the six co-incharges for the state, adding that a big state like UP needs several co-incharges.
Goyal has been given the responsibility for Puducherry, and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
BJP general secretary Muralidhar Rao will be the Lok Sabha election in-charge for Karnataka, the statement said.
