New Delhi, Jan 27: Ahead of Punjab Elections, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is ready to take the stage in Jalandhar on Friday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi leading this political campaign.
Modi will campaign for BJP along with its alliance Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in Punjab starting from the PAP ground in Jalandhar, Punjab. BJP President Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and other senior leaders will join the campaign in Punjab elections.
According to media reports, the BJP campaigners are likely to highlight the achievements of the central government, and how it has remained “untainted in two-and-a-half years contrary to the UPA dispensation which witnessed several scams”.
In fact, the Punjab branch of the party has already begun pushing some of the popular policies and schemes of the Narendra Modi government.
With the state Assembly election in Punjab turning into a triangular contest between SAD-BJP alliance, INC and AAP which is also making its state assembly debut in the state, and anti-Badal sentiment rising in the state, the BJP is likely to face a tough competition.
Rahul Gandhi will address a rally in Amritsar with INC chief ministerial candidate Captain Amarinder Singh, whereas, Kejriwal will be holding a roadshow in Patiala at noon.
