Jhansi, Oct 23: After addressing a huge election campaign rally in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is all set to reach out to the people of Jhansi in Bundelkhand on October 25, Friday.
According to a report, the BJP is expecting two lakh people to attend Modi's Jhansi rally. In an order to bring more crowd in Jhansi, the party is reportedly hopeful of ferrying people from neighbouring poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, where assembly elections will held on November 25.
Vijendra Singh Sisodia, the BJP spokesperson from Madhya Pradesh said that Modi's message in Jhansi will have an impact on assembly elections in MP.
The BJP has only three MLAs from Bundelkhand region.
He also asserted that the BJP's supporters and party workers from various districts of MP bordering Uttar Pradesh will definitely attend Modi's rally in Jhansi.
Babu Ram Nishad, BJP's Bundelkhand region president said, "There are no major industry or educational institutions in Bundelkhand which can cater crowd to Jhansi rally. Majority of the population here are farmers. The party has a target of two lakh people for the rally, but that may go up."
The low population density in Jhansi is said to be the main reason behind BJP's move to ferry audience from neighbouring MP and UP.
The BJP has only three MLAs from Bundelkhand region- Uma Bharti from Charkhari, Ravi Sharma from Jhansi and Sahdvi Niranjan Jyoti from Hamirpur.
