    Massive turnout at Ramabai Ambedkar Grounds

    The BJP hopes that the rally, held at the Ramabai Ambedkar grounds, will see a turnout of over 10 lakh people — double the capacity of the 80 acre ground. The party has arranged for over 15,000 buses to help supporters attend the rally, PTI reported. 

    In all likelihood, the prime minister will raise the ongoing Samajwadi party feud in his address as he hopes to win the electorate of Uttar Pradesh in an election that is very crucial for the BJP in the next general elections — more importantly as it desperately needs a majority in Rajya Sabha. In his rally today, the Prime Minister is also likely to repeat his New Year Eve announcements as well.

    "Someone says it's a rally, someone might say it is a grand rally, but what I see is a huge ocean of people who want change in Uttar Pradesh."

The BJP has claimed an attendance of over 10 lakh people. Thousands of workers and party supporters were trickling in at the rally venue since morning.
