J&K BJP plans ‘majestic welcome’ for PM Modi on March 7 in Srinagar

‘10,000 flags, 1000 banners, hoardings to be installed in City, 15000 people to come from each district, over 100 hotels booked in Sgr to accommodate workers, leaders; 1000 vehicles hired to ferry workers, 500 BJP workers tasked to complete installation of flags, banners; rally open for all, no need for passes’

 

Srinagar: Bhartiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) J&K unit is all set for a majestic welcome for Prime Minister Narendera Modi, who is arriving on March 7 to address a mega rally at Bakshi Stadium in Srinagar.

 

A BJP leader privy to the preparation plan told KNO that J&K BJP has already started mega preparations to give rousing reception to PM Modi on March 7. “There will be a grand welcome for PM Modi at Bakshi Stadium. We have devised a plan and our workers are working on that,” he said. “This time, it will be a unique welcome for our leader.”

 

PM Modi will address a mammoth rally at Bakshi Stadium in Srinagar where BJP is expecting two lakh people. It will be the first public rally of PM Modi in Srinagar after abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019. This will be the second rally of PM Modi in J&K since February 20, the day he addressed a massive public gathering at Jammu where he inaugurated developmental projects worth Rs 3200 Cr.

 

“Over 10,000 party flags will be installed across Srinagar right from the airport to the rally venue. There will also be 1000 banners and hoardings displaying PM Modi’s photographs with slogans like “Ab ki baar 400 paar (this time, we will cross 400 seats),” a source in the BJP disclosed to KNO. He said that as per the plan, 15000 people including BJP workers will be coming from each district of Kashmir.

 

“Over 500 workers have been tasked to fix hoardings, install banners and flags at various places across Srinagar,” he said. “These workers are working overnight to finish the work.”

 

A BJP leader said that the rally is open and nobody needs to approach the BJP office for passes. “Everybody who wishes to listen to PM Modi at Bakshi Stadium is welcome and he or she doesn’t need any entry pass,” he said, wishing not to be named.

 

To accommodate workers in Srinagar a day ahead of the rally, over 100 hotels, lodges and guest houses have been booked in advance for smooth flow of workers and people towards the venue.

 

“To ferry workers and common citizens from districts, over 1000 vehicles have been hired (by the party),” the source in the BJP said.

 

Sources in the BJP said that all leaders, district presidents and lower and middle-rung leadership of BJP will remain present at the venue. “It will not be a mere rally but a huge morale booster for the BJP cadre across Kashmir ahead of the Lok Sabha polls slated for April-May,” they said.
