New Delhi, Nov 24 (UNI) With only four days left for campaigning for the Delhi Assembly elections, the BJP has decided to scale up its electioneering tips under which its star campaigners will stage more than 125 public meetings in the capital from tomorrow.
Prime Minister-designate Lal Krishna Advani will kickstart his campaign from the Kirari assembly seat tomorrow. The party has fielded Anil Jha from that seat and seems quite confident of emerging triumphant from there. Mr Advani will also address 14 public meetings in Chandni chowk, Model Town, trans-Yamuna and other places, party sources said.
Meanwhile, party President Rajnath Singh will set the election campaign ball rolling from the Narela seat.
Gujrat Chief Minister Narendra Modi will also address a public meeting in favour of the party's New Delhi assembly seat candidate Vijay Jolly tomorrow. Jolly is locking horns with Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on the seat. In the evening, Mr Modi will be lending a shoulder to the election campaign of BJP's Delhi chief ministerial candidate Vijay Kumar Malhotra in the Greater Kailash assembly seat from where the south Delhi MP is testing his electoral fortunes against Congress' Jitender Kochar.
Former cricketer-turned-politician and Amritsar MP Navjot Singh Siddhu will also climb the barnstorming bandwagon and will address 30 public meetings in the next two days, the party sources said.
Other BJP leaders, who will also be using every weapon in their armoury in the electioneering include Venkaiah Naidu, Uttarakhand Chief Minister BC Khanduri, Smriti Irani, Shanta Kumar, Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi, Najma Heptullah and Shahnawaz Hussain.
Campaigning for the November 29 polls will come to an end on November 27. Counting of the votes will be taken up on December 8.
