All eyes will be on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his first visit to poll-bound Haryana on Tuesday. Though Modi is officially coming to inaugurate the four-laning of the Kaithal-Rajasthan Border Section of National Highway 52/65, political parties are curious about his visit.
During his last visit to Haryana, Modi has attacked the ruling Congress government while campaigning for the BJP. He was then in charge of Haryana affairs and has strong ties with certain state leaders.
Meanwhile, BJP president Amit Shah has been addressing political rallies at Mahendergarh and Jind. During the Jind rally, Congress veteran and Rajya Sabha MP Birender Singh joined the party.
BJP ally Haryana Janhit Congress will also be watchful of Modi’s visit. HJC chief Kuldeep Bishnoi, who has been left out of the list of invitees, said he would see to it that his party takes its call on the future of the alliance as they have been constantly ignored by the BJP.
Bishnoi was not called for Shah’s rallies and the BJP president remained quiet on the alliance at Jind, while at Mahendergarh he said that alliance or no alliance, the BJP would contest all the 90 seats.
The BJP is hopeful that Modi’s visit will give further boost to the already buoyed party. The BJP won seven out of the eight LS seats it contested in Haryana.
