Ahead of the rally, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik along with other police officials inspected the CBD Ground on Sunday.

Modi, who is BJP's star campaigner for the Delhi Assembly polls, will address another rally in southwest Delhi's Dwarka area on Tuesday.

"One rally of the Prime Minister will be held in East Delhi at Karkardooma on 3 February. The other rally will be held in Dwarka on 4 February," a senior party leader had said.

Modi's appeal is likely to be used by the party as a final push for votes. The party feels that Modi's appeal can be effective in garnering votes of undecided voters.

Sources said the two rallies have been planned after the Union Budget. "The dates have been chosen as the BJP wants to utilise the Prime Minister when the campaign is at its peak," sources added.

Modi had addressed a rally at Ramlila Maidan on 22 December last year. In that rally, he attacked the opposition parties, accusing it of spreading lies over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

Modi also took on the ruling AAP government in Delhi, accusing it for not doing enough to combat rising pollution levels in the city.

The BJP's senior leadership, led by the party national president JP Nadda and home minister Amit Shah, has been in overdrive ever since the announcement of the Delhi Assembly polls.

Other leaders, including Union Cabinet Ministers and chief ministers of BJP-ruled states, have also been campaigning across the city.

Voting in all 70 Assembly constituencies of Delhi is slated to be held on 8 February. The counting of votes will take place on 11 February.
