During Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) PM candidate Narendra Modi’s speech in Chhattisgarh’s Ambikapur, a replica of Red Fort was erected behind the stage.
The BJP wanted to convey that Modi would become the Prime Minister next year and deliver a speech from Red Fort.
The party’s Delhi unit has gone one step further by organising a Modi rally near Red Fort. The speech near Red Fort will be one of three delivered by Modi in the capital on Saturday. “We do not want Congress to create any hurdle for us at the last moment. So, we do not publicise them (Modi’s rallies),” a BJP state office-bearer said.
Delhi BJP has been counting on Modi’s image to win the Assembly elections. Many candidates and senior leaders have been demanding votes in the name of Modi. BJP leaders believe that Modi’s presence in the last lap of campaigning could be a game-changer.
On Saturday, Modi’s rallies are scheduled to be held at CDR Park in Shahdara, Sultanpur Majra and Parade Ground in Chandni Chowk.
Modi is expected to address a rally at Ambedkar Nagar on Sunday.
