Chandigarh, Oct 9 (UNI) The BJP will organise a 'Haryana Bachao rally' in Rohtak on December 23 on the occasion of birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Announcing this here today, BJP national secreatry Vijay Goel, incharge Haryana, said the rally would be addressed by Mr Vajpayee, senior BJP leader L K Advani, party president Rajnath Singh and Ms Sushma Swaraj among others.
He said the rally was being organised to protest against the alleged shortage of power and water, rising prices, deterioration of law and order and ''all-round failure'' of the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government.
The theme of the rally would be 'Bech Diya Haryana' (Haryana sold out), Mr Goel said.
Before the December 23 rally, he said the BJP would also organise 'Bijli Gayab' rallies all over the state to expose the government on the power issue.
Mr Goel said the Hooda government tried to mislead the public by holding the 'Bijli rally' at Jhajjar even as it had generated no elecricity during its three-year rule so far.
He said the rally would be organised on December 23, two days ahead of Mr Vajpayee's birthday, as December 23 is a Sunday.
