Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address around 15 rallies in Maharashtra beginning from October 4, ahead of the state assembly polls.

On October 4, Modi will address rallies at Beed, Aurangabad, and Mumbai and on October 5 at Kolhapur Gondia and Nasik, BJP Vice President Vinay Sahasrabuddhe told reporters here.

We have chalked out plans for 15 to 16 poll ralies of PM. We can have more if needed," he said.

Asked about Uddhav Thackeray questioning the logic of having so many rallies of the prime minister despite claims of a Modi wave, Sahasrabuddhe said, "we have full right to hold PM's rallies. Who can stop us."

To a query on BJP having post poll alliances after the October 15 poll, he said, "Such talk is irrelevant. We are confident that BJP will win majority on its own."

The party will come out with poll manifesto for Maharashtra elections in two or three days, he said.
Sahasrabuddhe criticised Congress poll advertisement which shows Prithviraj Chavan claiming that Maharashtra was number one state.

"Maharashtra is number one as far as suicides, road accidents, crime conviction is concerned," the BJP leader said.
Congress and NCP have failed to implement their previous poll manifestos, he said. "They promised to build 10 lakh house but built only 44,000," he said.
