Since his anointment as the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is all set to address his first rally in the national capital on Sunday.
A 100-feet long cut out of Narendra Modi, about 20 LED screens and CCTV cameras have been readied for his rally to be held at Japanese Park, Rohini. The attendance at the rally is being pegged at five lakh.
An 80x40 ft stage has been erected at the venue, say television reports.
Issues like corruption, price rise and security will be in focus at the rally but names of candidates for the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections may also be announced.
The event will be attended by diplomats from 40 different nations and sportspersons and ex-servicemen may also be in attendance.
This rally, called "Vikas rally" (development rally), may also give a much needed boost to the schism-ridden BJP which has been trounced in the last three elections in 1999, 2003 and 2008. Such a booster-shot is also being planned by the Maharashtra arm of the BJP.
It is reported that around 100 LED screens will be put up in market areas and across the city for the people who are unable to attend the rally.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will run additional trains to cater to the over 50,000 people who are expected to move through the city for the rally, suggest reports. Special buses have also been arranged to bring in students and supporters from far-flung areas of Delhi.
Meanwhile, security has been tightened in and around the venue and arrangements have been made for medical and fire services
Around 3,000 policemen and paramilitary personnel will also provide security in and around the venue.
