New Delhi: Ahead of Narendra Modi’s big rally in the capital state, Delhi Congress Chief, JP Agarwal seems to be tension free of the magnetic power of the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate to attract the mass, as he said Congress is in power in Delhi for 15 years because the party did a great work here.
“Congress is in power in Delhi for 15 years because we did great work. Don`t care if its Modi ji`s rally or anyone else`s,” Agarwal said.
The Gujarat Chief Minister is all set to address a grand rally in the national capital on September 29.
"Modi will be holding large-scale rallies and meetings across the country," BJP’s vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today.
Meanwhile, Delhi unit of BJP is leaving no stone unturned to make Narendra Modi`s rally a big success with the party today unveiling preparations for it including the publicity blitzkrieg.
Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel, who is overseeing preparations for the rally at Japanese Park in Rohini, claimed the party was working on a "high-decibel 360 degree publicity campaign" to ensure maximum impact of the rally.
"The party is using state of the art technology to ensure that not only those who attend the rally can have a life-time experience listening to Modi but those who are not able to come to the venue due to constraint of space can share this joy too," Goel told a press conference.
He also unveiled a countdown clock for the rally.
Around 20,000 square feet area will form the enclosure for the stage. There will be three stages in all with one main stage with a dimension of 80X40 sq feet. The two level main stage from where Modi will be speaking will be eight feet high from the central podium which will be ten feet height.
The backdrop of the main stage will have a lotus structure with a screen engraved on it.
"There will be two giant screens behind the stage and 20 LED screens within the ground. Around 5 lakh people are going to attend this rally. These 20 LED screens will ensure that those attending the rally can get a close view of the leaders at the stage as they speak," said Goel.
But adding an interesting twist to the upcoming event (rally) of the supposed youth icon Narendra Modi, it is being speculated that top leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party will skip this event.
To hide the much visible differences between the top leaders of the BJP, Naqvi said, “It is not required that every leader (of the party) joins him (Modi) at every event.”
"These events have been organised so that different leaders are present at different events, with him. There is nothing novel in it. This is not different from how this was planned," he added.
Reportedly, BJP president Rajnath Singh, senior leaders LK Advani and Sushma Swaraj have decided to skip Modi`s rally in Delhi.
