Narendra Modi’s Kanpur rally on October 20

Kanpur: BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi’s rally here will be held on October 20, Kanpur unit of the party said.

The rally was earlier scheduled for October 15, but was postponed as the date was clashing with two religious festivals.

BJP general secretary Amit Shah will visit Kanpur on October 3 to review the preparations for the rally and meet party workers, BJP sources here said. The venue for the rally has not been fixed yet, they said.

BJP Kanpur president Surendra Maithani said party workers have been visiting the NCR Railway Headquarters in Allahabad for past one week to obtain permission to hold the rally in a railway field in Nirala Nagar.

Maitahni alleged that Railways was refusing to give permission on the directions of the Centre.

Three lakh people are expected to take part in the Kanpur rally. Other options for the venue include the Moti Jheel field and Brajendra Swaroop park but they are comparatively smaller keeping in mind the number of people expected, he said.

Earlier, the rally was scheduled on October 15, but it had to be postponed as Dussehra would fall on October 13 or 14 and Bakr-eid on October 15 or 16 and district administration would not have adequate security forces at that time, he said.

Congress MP and Coal minister Sriprakash Jaiswal has won Lok Sabha elections from Kanpur for last three times and is expected to win this time also.

BJP has not yet announced its Lok Sabha candidate from Kanpur. SP has announced stand-up comedian Raju Srivastava as its candidate, while BSP has nominated youth leader Salim Ahmed to contest the polls.

    Glad  Day  ?

    Yesterday , I wrote about “ Sad Day / Bad Day / Mad Day “ , not knowing that by evening , it will turn into a “ Glad  Day “ !
    “ Glad  Day “ for 2 reasons :

     Late in the afternoon , in a press-meet , Rahul Gandhi said,

    “ My opinion on the ordinance is that it is completely nonsense and it should be torn up and thrown out. I personally feel , that what our Government has done as far as this ordinance is concerned, is wrong “

     Supreme Court said,

    “ The voter has the right to negative voting by rejecting all the candidates in the fray by exercising the option of ‘ none of the above ‘ in the EVMs and ballot papers “

    Now only if the politicians ( whether clean or tainted ) 

     dare to meet the people of their constituencies

     care to ask them what are their further “ Expectations “

    voters will tell them , ( Citizen’s Charter of Demand ? ),

     Scrap the ordinance / bill pending in the Standing Committee. Based on Supreme Court verdict , prevent convicted MPs / MLAs from attending Lok Sabha / State Legislatures

     Scrap amendment to RTI Act , which keeps the political parties outside its purview

     Accept all donations / contributions to a political party by cheque only ( irrespective of the amount ) and display these on your web sites , along with quarterly statement of all expenditures

     Display on your web site complete declaration ( financial as well as criminal ) of each candidate / elected MP / MLA , filed with Election Commission – and every year , if elected

     Pass the Jan-LokPal bill ( Anna Hazare version ) before the 2014 elections

    By owning-up the “ mistake “ committed by UPA Government ( as far as the Ordinance is concerned ) , not only Rahul Gandhi showed unprecedented moral courage ( could be political hara-kiri ? ) , he has silenced / disarmed his critics and won over millions of young admirers

    If only he continues to display similar “ Courage “ in respect of what I have listed above , I have no doubt , on its own , Congress will win 300+ seats in the 2014 National Elections

    Rahul,
    Remember , your “ Pre-Poll Actions “ on the ground will send a powerful “ Message of Hope “ to the disillusioned / frustrated youth of India

    Neither Narendra Modi , nor Arvind Kejriwal will be able to match such a challenge !
