Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in the capital on January 10, officially launching the party’s campaign for the Delhi Assembly elections.

Recently elected BJP chief ministers Manohar Lal Khattar, Jharkhand CM-designate Raguvar Das and Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis are likely to attend the rally, where they would be felicitated. The rally will be held at Ramlila Maidan.

The party, which has yet to announce its chief ministerial candidate for the national capital, hopes to ride to victory on the back of Modi. As the election commission is expected to announce the Assembly elections anytime, the BJP is planning to highlight the party’s
“achievements” in other states such as Haryana and Jammu and Kashmir in the run-up to elections in the capital.

When asked about the rally, Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said, “We have requested the PM to address the rally and it will be a grand launch of the party’s campaign.”

Senior leaders believe felicitating BJP CMs at the rally would strike a chord with city voters, especially the migrant population. “And with Modi leading the campaign, we would surely win the elections,” one leader said.

Many party leaders believe the coming elections aren’t about victory alone, but victory with a clear majority.

“No one wants a deadlock again, so people would need to give one party absolute majority this time,” a senior party leader said.

      Modi is resigning from PM post to become the CM of delhi or why else would BJP not declare who is going to lead them...or they want to piggy back on Modi to put some corrupt non performing person who can continue the current rotten system of delhi...

          The BJP has only Modi and his lectures to tempt the people.I hope this time Delhi will not be fooled by the empty words! Remember all the U-Turns, all the broken promises, all the lies........Vote for AAP and give them a chance! God willing, this time the country will change!

            Disappointed with Modi's performance in Centre- His silence has been deafening in matters of grave concern... In my opinion- multiple religions, cultures, languages makes us unique..as IndiaEconomy on a downward turn...rupee tumbling down and govt sitting in Godse Temple?Ever since BJP has come to power-this is all what we are talking about- religious conversions, love jihad and other similar nonsense...A religion that has lasted a billion years against all odds is not going to diminish now- just the stupid politicians using religion to divide people however need to go away...BJP has absolutely no agenda this time and yet desperate to get to power after 16 years is clear...all they have is a walking talking toy who can give a speech quicker than you can say ModiWave..AAP- is fighting for Delhi's future...They have vision and a plan.. these are solid plans backed by real people's feedback and real people's calculation..and not to forget clean, non criminal candidates..I say AAP should celebrate the fact that they are trying to change the nature of politics in this country..and I think Delhi will give the majority AAP needs to implement its vision
