Modi to address 'Bharata Gellisi' rally in Hubli today

 BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, will address a rally in Hubli on Friday. 

The ‘Bharata Gellisi’ rally will begin at 3 pm for which police have made elaborate security arrangements with more than 4,000 policemen being deployed. Traffic diversions, and parking places have also been arranged. 

On Kusugal Road, on the outskirts of City, 50 acres of land is being used for the function. In the last one week, series of rallies and other publicity activities had been conducted by BJP workers. The entire City wears a festive look decked up with BJP banners, hoardings and flags. Party leaders expect more than two lakh people, including BJP workers, to attend the rally.

Modi’s meeting in the city, the heart of Mumbai-Karnataka region, is considered morale booster by party leaders and workers of not only Dharwad Lok Sabha constituency, but six other constituencies in the region, in the backdrop of forthcoming parliamentary elections.

Moreover, sitting MP of Dharwad constituency Pralhad Joshi is now the president of BJP State unit, and therefore, winning this seat again has become a prestige issue for BJP leaders. 

Though dates of parliamentary elections are yet to be announced and other parties have not yet announced names of candidates, Joshi’s campaigning for elections began one month back itself.

 BJP leaders are looking at Modi rally as milestone event in their efforts to make Joshi Dharwad MP for the third time.

In 2009 polls, BJP had won all the seven seats in the region, but the performance was not so good in the Assembly elections held last year. So, Modi’s rally being held in the hometown of Joshi has gained importance and the party leaders have left no stone unturned to make Modi’s rally a grand event.
