The Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV), launched by Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath in 2002, is set to get restructured and spread its footprints from the traditional base of eastern UP to the western part of the state in order to assist the ruling Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, an HYV leader said on condition of anonymity.

The decision to restructure HYV was taken during Adityanath’s visit to Gorakhpur on Tuesday.

Raghvendra Pratap Singh, the state in-charge of the HYV, today dissolved the state, regional and district units, as well as the organisational departments.

The HYV had played a key role in Adityanath’s campaign in the 2004, 2009 and 2014 Lok Sabha elections, and also spreading the ‘message of Hindutva’ in rural areas of eastern UP.

Singh said new state and district units will be constituted as part of the HYV revamp process, and that the decision to overhaul the organisation was taken to give young and committed workers an opportunity.

A meeting of HYV leaders will be held soon to discuss the reconstitution of the organisation and appointment of new office bearers, Singh, who is considered a close aide of Adityanath, said.
