As part of his countrywide 95-day tour which began from Jammu in April, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah reached Chandigarh on Saturday for a roadshow.

Shah will also unveil a statue of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) icon Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay, whose birth centenary is being celebrated. He will also inaugurate a library named after Nanaji Deshmukh and an e-library.

Shah will hold a series of meetings with councillors, office bearers, workers and will also review the party's organisational activities.

To strengthen party base in some states, Shah was in Tripura on a two-day tour on 7 May.

Earlier in April, Shah visited Jammu and Kashmir on a two-day visit as part of his national 'Vistaar Yatra'.

Shah will spend one to three days in each states. The tour will focus on taking stock of the party's organisational strength and further expansion of electoral appeal across the country.

Shah is particularly focusing on states like West Bengal, Odisha, Telangana and Kerala.
