Bangalore, Oct 30: The Karnataka BJP has found a major boost, perhaps the first time since its pathetic loss in the state assembly polls in May, ahead of the rally of the party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi here on November 17.

The BJP expects a turnout of nearly 5 lakh people. The party has also decided to charge a token of Rs 10 from its workers and supporters who can also register their names online to participate in the event.

The party had made similar arrangements at Modi's mega rallies in Hyderabad and Bhopal in the past few months.

The state unit of the BJP also began its preparations for the mega rally with a ‘bhoomi pujan' attended by senior local party leaders. It has also been decided that the stage at the Bangalore Palace Grounds will be facing the east.

The state BJP leaders were extra careful about Narendra Modi's security

The party is also careful about the security arrangements at the rally, particularly in the wake of the serial blasts at the venue of the October 27 Hunkaar Rally in Patna which saw the death of six persons, including a suspect bomber.

Senior leaders of the party are working in coordination with the state and central governments over the security.

State BJP chief Prahlad Joshi said the tragedy in Patna took place because of the negligence of the state government and that they will consult security experts on security arrangements.
