Patna: 11 trains, 30 ft dynamic screen as backdrop for Modi rally

Patna, Oct 20: The BJP is pulling out all stops to make its prime ministerial aspirant Narendra Modi's maiden political rally in his rival Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's home turf here on October 27 a mega success.

State BJP stalwart and former Deputy Chief Minister, Sushil Kumar Modi told PTI that the party had reserved 11 trains for the 'Hoonkar rally' and would install a large dynamic screen as a backdrop on stage to create a larger than life image of the Gujarat chief minister.

Unlike other places where replica of Red Fort and other monuments were created, the rally at Patna would instead have a 30-feet dynamic screen as background on the stage, Sushil Kumar Modi said. The LED screen would display slides showing famous historical places of the state like Nalanda university, Bodh Gaya temple, Gol Ghar among others and portraits of great personalities.

The BJP is sparing no efforts to make Modi's Patna rally a mega success

The personalities whose portraits would be relayed include hero of 1857 revolt Veer Kuer Singh, first President of Independent India Rajendra Prasad and Loknayak Jayprakash Narayan "JP", all hailing from the state, Sushil Modi said. He said for a comprehensive coverage of the rally, the party had decided to press into service around 12 of its own cameramen for capturing bit-by-bit picture of the crowd and other memorable events.

"This has been decided because TV channels can put one cameraman for the event who can zoom their camera only on one side. So we have decided to capture pictures of the rally through lens of 12 video cameras," Sushil Modi said.

"The video cassettes would be made available to the TV channels for their convenience," he said. Leader of opposition in Bihar Assembly Nand Kishore Yadav said that for the first time linear sound system would be used in the state so that everybody could hear the speech clearly.
