    BJP chief Amit Shah is in Jind for his ‘Yuva Hunkar’ rally which is going to see the participation of more than one lakh motorcycle riders today. The rally is being seen as an attempt by BJP to consolidate its hold in Jind which is considered to be the nerve centre of Haryana politics.

    The Party has made it mandatory for its MLAs from all 90 constituencies and local leaders to reach on bikes in full strength. Shah will reach Jind from Delhi while Haryana CM Khattar will arrive from Karnal. Both the BJP leaders will arrive in a chopper and later on bikes till rally ground at Pandu Pindara village of Jind district.  Hundreds of bikers wearing saffron colour helmets, clothes are on bikes on the way to Jind.

BJP president Amit Shah arrived in Jind, Haryana, to take part in ‘Yuva Hunkar’ rally, which is expected to see more than one lakh motorcycle riders today. The BJP chief rode a pillion amid tight security to the venue at Pandu Pindara village, on the outskirts of the Jind city, after his chopper landed on Thursday afternoon.

The rally is being seen as an attempt by the BJP to consolidate its hold on Jind and adjoining areas. Jind is considered to be the nerve centre of Haryana politics. Acording to reports, hundreds of bikers wearing saffron colour helmets, clothes were on bikes on the way to Jind.

Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar who is personally overseeing the arrangements has already arrived at the venue.

"All necessary arrangements for tomorrow's rally have been made," the Haryana chief minister told reporters.

According to the claims of BJP leaders, over one lakh bikers will participate in Shah's rally.

The Party has made it mandatory for its MLAs from all 90 constituencies and local leaders to reach on bikes in full strength.

Tight security arrangements have been made in view of the rally, officials said. Armed jawans could be seen in different parts of Jind and some adjoining towns, including roads leading to the venue at Pandu Pindara village, on the outskirts of the Jind city.

A few Companies of paramilitary forces have also reached Jind. Police and security forces have been put on alert to prevent any untoward incident taking place during the rally.

The All-India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti had earlier withdrawn their proposed protest rally in Jind tomorrow after talks with Khattar and Union Minister Birender Singh on Sunday night. The opposition parties, however, decided to protest in a peaceful manner.

State AAP chief Naveen Jaihind has announced presenting 'pakodas' to Shah over the BJP's alleged failure to generate the promised three lakh jobs for the youth in the last three years. Main opposition INLD had announced it will show black flags and balloons to protest failure of the BJP government on various fronts including the SYL canal issue.
