The party is planning to install around 100 LED screens across the city for the live telecast of prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. The party is expecting around five lakh people at the rally, the first major rally ahead of the Delhi Assembly elections.
"The main aim to install LEDs across the city is to reach out to a large group of audience in the city. The LEDs will be installed in places like markets, railway stations, interstate bus terminus and other busy areas," said Abhay Verma, vice-president of Delhi BJP. The screens will be installed where the party expects more people so that more people can hear his speech.
Though BJP is yet to finalise the names of its chief ministerial candidate against Congress' Shiela Dikshit, the party workers are all gung ho about Modi's rally as it is counting on Modi for a comeback.
"He is our PM candidate and we want maximum people to hear his speech. We have got several requests from market associations to install LED screens. We will provide technical support to the associations," said former Delhi BJP President Vijender Gupta, who is in charge of the rally.

He added that the trader associations have agreed to the idea of the LED screens in the market. Since it will be a sunday, the markets will be crowded and the associations have demanded that LEDs be put up as they will not be able to close the markets.
The youth is being targeted through this rally as Modi is known for his ability to connect with the youth.
Some of the locations shortlisted for installing the LEDs are Lajpat Nagar, Sarojini Nagar, Kamala Nagar market, ISBT Sarai Kale Khan, Uttam Chowk and more. The telecast will be made available through internet.
