Madhya Pradesh polls: PM Modi to visit Bhopal today, check full itinerary
The ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ is a part of the BJP's launch of a series of five yatras earlier this month in view of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.
Eying the Madhya Pradesh polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to arrive in the poll-bound state on Monday, September 25, to address a mega “Mahakumbh” rally. Several schools have declared holiday due to the anticipated heavy traffic congestion in view of the Prime Minister’s visit to Bhopal.
The ‘Karyakarta Mahakumbh’ is being organised on the birth anniversary of Jana Sangh co-founder Deendayal Upadhyaya to mark the formal culmination of the BJP's 'Jan Ashirwad Yatras'. The saffron camp is reportedly expecting a gathering of 10 lakh people at the event to demonstrate the party's strength.
The rally will be held in Bhopal's Jamboree Maidan. The event is a part of the BJP's launch of a series of five yatras earlier this month. The first yatra was inugurated by BJP national president JP Nadda in Chitrakoot, Satna, on September 3.
