BJP sounds poll bugle in Maharashtra

BJP is getting into election mode for the assembly polls in Maharashtra expected by the end of this year.

In a major boost to the party, a number of leaders from opposition parties have joined the BJP.

Ahead of the polls, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis launched Maha Janadesh Yatra and travelled across the state to highlight achievements of his government in the past five years.

The mega roadshow will conclude in Nashik on Thursday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi present on the occasion.

Elaborate arrangements have been made for the mega event which is expected to be attended by about 1.5 lakh people.

The Maharashtra Chief Minister will take out a roadshow ahead of the public meeting on Thursday.

During the month long Maha Janadesh Yatra, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis covered 4000 kilometers of distance and highlighted the initiatives of his government.

The Yatra covered parts of Vidarbha, northern Maharashtra and Marathwada. It kicked off from Mojhri village in Amravati in Vidarbha, a place where Rastrasant Tukdoji Maharaj resided and will culminate in Nashik, the venue of Simhastha Kumbh.

The two vehicles used by party president Amit Shah in Uttar Pradesh and former MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan have been made available for the Maha Janadesh Yatra.
