Upendra Shukla, who is now Gorakhpur's region president of BJP, has served as the party's district president in the past.
The BJP on Monday announced candidates for the Lok Sabha byelections for three seats in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, and for one assembly by-election from Bihar.
Now both the seats would have triangular contest as SP and Congress have given candidature in both the seats.
By-elections to Gorakhpur and Phulpur was necessitated after Gorakhpur MP Yogi Adityanath and Phulpur MP Keshav Prasad Maurya resigned to become UP's chief minister and deputy chief minister, respectively. "This did not materialize as Congress has already announced candidate from Gorakhpur", he said.

"The NISHAD Party and the Peace Party are supporting us, but Pravin Kumar Nishad will contest the bypoll on the SP symbol, which is the cycle", Mr Yadav said.

"We believe that the hard work of the party workers will definitely help us to clinch victory on both the seats", UP BJP spokesperson Manish Shukla told PTI.
Shukla said the BJP will not only retain the two seats but also improve its margin of victory.
The Bharatiya Janata Party named Upendra Shukla and KS Patel as its candidates from Gorakhpur and Phulpur seats, reported ANI. "There are only two waves - Modi wave and Yogi wave - in Uttar Pradesh, thanks to their vision for development as reflected in both the Union and state budgets", he said.
