New Delhi: With a week left for Delhi polls, BJP’s trump card, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will be out in the capital on Saturday addressing a rally in east Delhi’s Vishwas Nagar.
Modi is scheduled to address a rally at CBD grounds near Karkardooma in east Delhi.
The Prime Minister will be holding four rallies in the coming week. Elaborate security arrangement have been made for his rallies, officials said. Over 5,000 personnel, including those of the of Special Protection Group (SPG), will be deployed in and around the grounds where Modi will address these rallies, officials said.
Apart from Vishwas Nagar, Modi will address rallies in Dwarka in west Delhi on February 1, Rohini in north Delhi on February 3 and Ambedkar Nagar in south Delhi on February 4.
In a strategic move to micromanage things, 120 BJP MPs have been given the duty to oversee booth management. According to reports, BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday rapped the Delhi unit of the party and asked them to give their 100% in the state elections.
Top leaders like Rajnath Singh, Uma Bharti, Smriti Irani, ML Khattar, Navjot Sidhu, Ravishankar Prasad and Manoj Tiwari will also hold rallies. Finance minister Arun Jaitley is leading the campaign with the party’s chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi.
BJP is also reportedly worried that Bedi, who joined the party and politics only a few days ago,Â has been unable to draw the kind of crowdsÂ that her main rival Arvind Kejriwal has been drawing.
Human Resource Development Minister and BJP leader Smriti Irani said, “Be it the elections in Maharashtra or Jharkhand we have all contributed to the elections as party workers.”
