Patna, Oct 27 (UNI) RJD workers have gathered all their resources for their party chief and Railway Minister Lalu Prasad's 'Chetavni' rally which will be a show of strength at the historical Gandhi Maidan here tomorrow.

RJD members claimed that denizens would see a 'human sea' all around the state capital as people have started thronging the city from early this morning.

The residences of RJD leaders were packed beyond their capacity with the rallyists coming in from different parts of the state.

Mr Prasad was camping in Bihar and had toured several remote places to make the rally a grand success. Besides, other union ministers of his party and several senior leaders have been on their toes during the past fortnight to ensure that the rally witnesses a massive turnout.

The Railway Minister had, in the past, organised scores of rallies during his 15 year of rule, which won him national acclaim and established him as one of the biggest mass leader of recent times.

The RJD chief who made his entry into the politics through the JP movement had organised his first rally, named ''Mandal'' in 1990.

The rally was held to celebrate reservation given to the backwards in central government services and it was even attended by the then Prime Minister V P Singh.

'Sadbhavna' rally convened after demolition of Babri mosque was attended by political stalwarts including CPI(M) patriarch Jyoti Basu, N T Rama Rao, M.Karunanidhi and others. Garib rally was organised here to create awareness among the poor for their right while 'Bhandaphode' rally was called to expose the previous Central government. An unusual ''Lathi'' rally was held in 2003 to expose the alleged anti-national designs of fundamental forces as well as to protest invasion of Iraq by the US.

During all the rallies, which pulled a huge crowd, Mr Prasad's party was in power and the state machinery was used for the success of the showgames.
