With 20 LED screens, three helipads and a mini healthcare unit being set up at the venue, the BJP is leaving no stone unturned for Sunday’s Parivartana Yatra rally in Bengaluru.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be speaking at the rally which is expected to be attended by thousands from across Karnataka. According to The Hindu, more than 25,000 party workers and supporters are being brought in from Chitradurga alone.  

The BJP is going all out to promote the rally. According to sources in the BJP, 40 departments have been formed to make the arrangement’s for Sunday’s rally. The departments are working round the clock to get police permission for the event as well as ensure that services like fire, electricity, ground permission are in order.

Four cooking halls will be set up with over 600 cooks preparing food in 250 counters where breakfast, lunch and dinner will be distributed. Forty-two auto-tippers and 6 compactors are being hired to clear garbage while toilets are also being built at the venue. A separate team under former corporator CK Ramamurthy will be managing traffic inside the grounds.  

The BJP is also wooing Bengaluru citizens at Lalbagh and popular shopping malls in the city. The party, which has already started a pamphlet distribution campaign to draw crowds, has also set up stalls outside these malls and at Lalbagh for their workers to meet and request the general public to attend the rally, as per Times of India.

Meanwhile, the Karnataka High Court on Friday stayed the shutdown called by a coalition of pro-Kannada organisations led by Vatal Nagaraj on the Mahadayi issue on February 4, the same day as the Parivartana Yatra rally.

A bandh was held by the coalition on January 25 when Amit Shah was addressing a Parivartana Yatra rally in Mysuru with the BJP leader claiming that the bandh was ’sponsored’ by the Congress.
