In what is seen as the sounding of the poll bugle for the assembly elections scheduled next year as also the general elctions, BJP national president Amit Shah on Thursday kicked off the Yuva Hunkar rally at Jind in Haryana on Thursday. He arrived at the rally venue riding pillion on a bike along with thousands of party members who were also on bikes.
Unsparing in his criticism of the previous Congress government in the state, Shah said the fact that he (Bhupinder Singh Hooda) as CM has gone to jail in graft cases points towards how deeply that government was steeped in corruption.
The rally was held amid a plea that had been filed in NGT on the grounds of pollution that the presence of over one lakh bikes may further intensify pollution in Delhi-NCR. Haryana government submitted that the participating motorbikes would have “valid PUC certificates”.
