These rallies could begin after the release of the BJP’s manifesto, said people aware of the matter. The PM’s rallies could also be slotted in constituencies that are being contested by the JDU as part of ruling coalition’s seat-sharing arrangement. This will send a strong message of unity between the BJP and the JDU as the LJP is putting up candidates on all JDU seats, said the people.
BJP and JDU leaders will be together on the stage, along with candidates from both parties, at the PM’s rallies. PM Modi had held a record 31 rallies in the previous Bihar election, when the BJP had contested alone in the state. In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the PM did 10 rallies in Bihar along with the JDU.
“The PM’s rally schedule will be finalised this week,” said a senior Bihar BJP functionary. The rallies will follow Covid-19 protocols of social distancing, size, maximum crowd and mandatory wearing of masks, as per the guidelines of the Union home ministry and the Election Commission of India (ECI), he said.
The PM had last week travelled to Himachal Pradesh to attend a couple of public meetings, which were held with proper social distancing.
