According to sources Prime Minister narendra modi had addressed an election rally on Tuesday in support of Bharatiya Janata Party candidates in Kurukshetra. Meanwhile this will be Modi’s second rally in the poll-bound Haryana in two consecutive days. Furthermore preparations were in full swing at Kurukshetra’s theme park, and several officials of Kurukshetra district administration were camped at the site.
Furthermore nearly 1,500 police personnel have been deputed to monitor security arrangements at the rally and the Special Protection Group (SPG) has taken charge of the venue. Perhaps traffic was diverted from the Kaithal-Kurukshetra, Pehowa-Kurukshetra and Jhansa-Kurukshetra roads to avoid jams. As per BJP’s Twitter handle, the PM’s rally is slated at 2 pm and before that, he addressed another poll rally in Charkhi Dadri at around noon.
Moreover Tuesday’s rally assumes political significance as the BJP leaders believe that Modi’s visit will strengthen the poll prospects of party candidates not only in Kurukshetra but also in the nearby districts of Karnal, Ambala, Kaithal and Yamunanagar. Apparently the prime minister is scheduled to address four rallies in the state in five days. Perhaps this is Modi’s third visit to Kurukshetra this year and he visited Kurukshetra on February 12 to launch Swachh Shakti 2019 and addressed a rally during the Lok Sabha polls on May 8.
