Patna: October 22, 2013 – MIL/ ZEENEWS - Patna’s Gandhi Maidan has stood witness to many historic events right from the freedom struggle to the JP movement and beyond. The historic venue is now decked up for BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s ‘Hunkar rally’ on October 27.
Going by the massive preparations underway, the event is set to be one of the biggest ever political rallies that Patna has ever seen with giant hoardings and banners dotting most major intersections in the city and also elsewhere in the state.
The Bihar BJP has left no stone unturned to ensure that Hunkar rally – the first big party event after the 17-year-old alliance with JD(U) ended on June 16 – makes an impact on the voters of the electorally crucial state.
The state unit of the BJP has launched a massive campaign to mobilise support for the rally which will be addressed by Narendra Modi among others.
Almost all senior party leaders from Bihar – the party has 12 MPs and 91 MLAs in the state – have fanned out across the 40 Lok Sabha seats in the state to build momentum for the big event. They are holding road shows and meetings to solicit public support for the rally.
