Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a rally in Haryana's Rohtak on Sunday ahead of the upcoming assembly elections in the state. He will also lay the foundation stone for several development projects, including the Shri Sheetla Mata Devi Medical College in Gurugram, a mega food park, the industrial model township in Rohtak and the Integrated Command and Control Center in Karnal, officials said. With PM Modi's arrival, the poll campaign in Haryana will kick-off. In Rohtak, PM Modi is said to give a greater push to promote environmental awareness.
PM Modi will kick off the party's poll campaign in Haryana with the 'Vijay Sankalp' rally, the BJP said. The Rohtak rally would be the culmination of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar's 'Jan Ashirwad Yatra', which began last month in Kalka. The BJP chose to hold the rally in Rohtak, which is considered to be the bastion of veteran Congress leader and former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. BJP national general secretary and Haryana in-charge Anil Jain along with union minister Narendra Singh Tomar Saturday reviewed the preparations and arrangements for the rally. Tight security arrangements have been made in the wake of the prime minister's rally, officials said.
