Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address two back-to-back election rallies in West Bengal on April 3, BJP leader Mukul Roy said on Sunday.
Mr. Modi will speak at a public meeting at Siliguri in north Bengal at 1 p.m., followed by another rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground at 3 p.m. on the same day, Mr. Roy said.
“The party is fully prepared to hold the two election rallies of Mr. Modi on the same day. It is a historical day for the BJP to organise such big meetings of the Prime Minister back-to-back,” he said.
Mr. Roy added that no other party has shown the “courage” to hold two meetings on the same day.
Senior BJP leaders including Amit Shah, Nitin Gadkari and Rajnath Singh would also visit West Bengal for campaigning before the general election next month.
