Days after addressing a huge rally in Uttar Pradesh`s Kanpur district, the BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi arrived in the Bundelkhand region to reach out to the people here on Friday.
The BJP`s PM addressed the rally at Government Inter College ground, which has a capacity to hold around one lakh people, however, party expected a turnout of over two lakh people to hear the Gujarat Chief Minister.
In an order to bring more crowd in Jhansi, the party reportedly ferried people from neighbouring Uttar Pradesh and the poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, where assembly elections will held on November 25.
The low population density in Jhansi is said to be the main reason behind BJP`s move to ferry audience from neighbouring MP and UP.
The BJP has only three MLAs from Bundelkhand region- Uma Bharti from Charkhari, Ravi Sharma from Jhansi and Sahdvi Niranjan Jyoti from Hamirpur.
The party has worked overtime to accord a warm and stupendous welcome to Modi, who is scheduled to address a rally at Government Inter College ground here.
