PM Narendra Modi's Rohini rally: As it happened
  • PM Modi concludes his speech.
  • Vote for a stable government and help the BJP grab the power under the leadership of Kiran Bedi: PM Modi urges Delhiites 
  • I was born in a poor family and have experienced poverty, so please don't lecture me on this issue, Modi tells his opponents.
  • New land acquisition law brought through ordinance to be used for development of villages, not for the rich, says the PM.
  • Will convert Delhi from 'generator capital' to 'power generation capital' and have planned 'roof-top' policy, says the PM.
  • The PM promises abundant power supply in the national capital.
  • The poor has been continuously being duped with false promises in every elections. We decided to authorise all colonies, says the PM.
  • Shouldn't people living in unauthorised colonies get health facilities, pucca houses, good education, asks the PM.
  • We want to move in a direction where there is no place for corruption, says the PM.
  • We are being asked why the Centre government is bringing in ordinances. We brought in Ordinances because we wanted to help e-rickshaw drivers in the country, says the PM.
  • Those who projected themselves as 'Mr clean' have been exposed. Even former PM Rajiv Gandhi, who too had projected himself as Mr clean, faced problems, exhorts the PM.
  • PM Modi launches an all-out frontal attack on AAP, says those who knew who have accounts in Swiss banks, who kept such names in their pockets, are now saying we don't know who gave us money.
  • Our critics do not have many issues. This time, media is not focusing on mother and son (Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi) campaigning also, says the PM.
  • Congress is a big party, so it was able to ruin Delhi for 15 years. Then came AAP and since it is a small party, it couldn't ruin much. Now it is our responsibility to pull Delhi out of 16-year damage, exhorts the PM.
  • PM Modi mocks at Aam Aadmi Party, calls it a 'temporary party'.
  • When someone looks at India, their attention is first drawn to Delhi, says the PM. 
  • Delhi gave me its affection, blessings and strength, says the PM.
  • Delhi gave us 7 out of 7 seats in General Elections. You made me your own. It is my duty to return the affection that the people of Delhi have given me, says the PM.
  • When Lok Sabha elections were taking place, my opponents used to ask - who knows Modi outside Gujarat: PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a rally to seek support for the BJP candidates in Rohini amid unprecedented security on Tuesday.

The PM held his first rally on Saturday at CBD grounds near Karkardooma court complex followed by another in Dwarka on February 1.

On February 4, PM Narendra Modi will another rally in south Delhi for his party.

Following intelligence inputs of terror threats during Delhi elections, a tight security blanket has been put in place for today's rally.

Over 5,000 personnel, including the officials of Special Protection Group (SPG), which looks after the Prime Minister's Security, have been deployed at service to prevent any untoward incident during the rally.

SPG and Delhi Police have made elaborate arrangements at all the rally venues of PM Modi.

According to a Delhi Police official, three-layered check points have been set up for every visitor at the venue. Visitors will be first checked at least 50 metres away from the ground. The second and third check points will be at the entry point.

Apart from manual checking, the visitors will be checked through hand held metal detectors, door frame metal detectors and baggage scanner machines.

The SPG officials will take over the charge on stage, an hour before, from where the Prime Minister will address supporters. A limited numbers of leaders will accompany Modi while he is delivering his speech.

The grounds are being kept under the watch of the CCTV cameras. Snipers including personnel of the elite National Security Guard have been deployed at the high-rise building near the grounds.

Police have requested the leaders to advise their supporters not to park their vehicles near the rally venues.

Delhi will go the polls on February 7 and the results will be announced on February 10.
