On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will undertake a massive campaign for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Chhattisgarh, a state that is about to have elections. PM Modi will be present at today’s closing ceremony of the BJP’s two “Parivartan Yatras” in Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh.
In the past three months, Prime Minister Modi has made three trips to the state, which is governed by the Congress and has assembly elections scheduled for the end of the year.
According to state BJP head Arun Sao, the prime minister would speak at the “Parivartan Mahasankalp” event, the conclusion of two Parivartan Yatras, at the Science College grounds here at 2:00 p.m.
Prior to PM Modi’s visit, Bilaspur has increased security.
Police have erected a sizable security presence at the program’s location in advance of the Prime Minister’s visit. There will be a deployment of 1,500 security personnel from the police, Special Protection Group (SPG), Chhattisgarh Armed Forces, National Security Guard, and Home Guard.
According to police authorities, a “no-flying zone” has also been established in a three-kilometer radius around the city, and anti-drone weapons have been placed in the region.
Parivartan Yatra of the BJP in Chhattisgarh
The BJP’s second Parivartan Yatra was launched from Jashpur (northern Chhattisgarh) on September 15, while the first one left Dantewada (south Chhattisgarh) on September 12.
Before culminating at Bilaspur, the yatras had 83 “Swagat Sabhas” (welcome gatherings), four roadshows, and several public gatherings. According to Sao, the yatras covered a distance of more over 3,000 kilometers over 87 assembly segments (out of a total 90 assembly segments).
The Maoist-affected districts of Bijapur, Sukma, and Antagarh are not on the schedule, although residents from these districts participated in the yatra as it went through their neighboring districts.
The party officials and employees’ spirits were unaffected by the rain, he claimed, and they joyfully took part in the two yatras, which attracted a sizable crowd.
The two yatras, in which almost 50 lakh people participated, converted the tide of change into a storm, according to Sao, who expressed confidence that the Congress would lose the 2019 elections.
