Maharashtra Assembly Poll: Narendra Modi to Launch Campaign from Today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to begin his campaigning for the most awaited Maharashtra Poll election on October 15, from Saturday. Modi will address about 15 election rallies across the state for the upcoming Assembly polls.
According to a report, Bharatiya Janata Party Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the party’s poll campaign for Haryana and Maharashtra by addressing poll rallies from October 4 to 13. He will address a rally in Karnal in Haryana on the first day of his campaign and will also address three poll rallies in Kolhapur, Beed and Mumbai in Maharashtra."
BJP vice president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe said, "We have planned out around 15-16 election rallies by the PM; There can be more if required."
Modi is scheduled to address rallies in Beed and Aurangabad in the Marathwada region followed by Mumbai, the country’s commercial capital. The election rally is expected to take place at the Mahalaxmi Race Course in Mumbai at 7 pm.
The venue is the same of which Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray launched his party’s poll campaign earlier this week and blasted the state BJP for snapping the two parties’ 25-year-old alliance.
However, Naqvi also said, "Our target is to get rid of the misrule of Congress in both the states and to establish a golden era of BJP’s good governance. Our main agenda is good governance and development."
According to reports, Sahasrabuddhe has expressed his confidence by saying the BJP would win a majority on its own strength and form the government without requiring any post-poll alliances.
When asked about BJP-Shiv Sena ally and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray opposing rallies by the prime minister in the wake of a "Modi wave", Sahasrabuddhe responded that the BJP had full right to have the meetings and nobody could stop them.
Meanwhile, during the most-awaited rally, many top state and central BJP leaders are expected to be present here. In the past few days, the build up to Modi’s rally has seen a series of public meetings by state BJP leaders and also union minister Nitin Gadkari in the state.
Since BJP ruled the state in coalition with the Shiv Sena during 1995 to 1999, it hopes to independently come to power for the first time.
