Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to address over 20 rallies in poll-bound West Bengal, where assembly elections will be held in eight phases starting 27 March. Modi is also going to address five-six public rallies in Assam, which will see a three-phase election.
“He is our campaigner-in-chief. Rallies by PM Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah will create a conducive atmosphere for the BJP. We had asked for around 30 rallies but are confident that he (PM) will surely address 20 rallies at least,” said senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former state president of West Bengal saffron party Rahul Sinha.
During the Bihar assembly elections last year, the Prime Minister has addressed around 12 rallies, held in three phases.
“There is a lot of enthusiasm among the people and they are looking forward to these rallies by the honourable PM. Our preparations are in place and we hope to cover maximum number of assembly constituencies through these rallies,” added Sinha.
According to reports, a party leader informed, Shah and BJP president J.P. Nadda are also likely to address over 50 rallies each in Bengal.
