Notably, the AIJASS had announced that it would protest BJP chief Amit Shah's bike rally to be held in Jind tomorrow, but withdrew its stir call after an agreement with the government on Sunday night in which Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had agreed to withdraw the cases lodged in connection with the reservation agitation.
The "Yuva Hunkar" rally will attract youth and energise workers, a BJP leader said. He also lauded Haryana farmers for ushering in "green revolution".
Before Shah, Khattar addressed the rally, saying that his government has eliminated regionalism in developmental works.
Interacting with the media after taking stock of preparations for the rally, Khattar said the visit of Amit Shah would be "historic and one-of-its-kind in which lakhs of people would come on their motorcycles to participate". The Jat agitators had announced that planned to reach Jind in tractor-trolleys to disrupt the bike rally. A total of 150 traffic police personnel, two ACPs, and nine traffic inspectors were also deployed in the city. BJP government in Haryana assured the NGT that only motorcycles with valid Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates will be allowed in the rally. Both of them will reach the venue in separate helicopters.
A plea had been filed on the grounds of pollution and health concerns that the presence of over one lakh bikes may further deteriorate the pollution levels in Delhi-NCR.
Addressing the BJP's "Yuva Hunkar Rally" at Pandu Pindara village of Jind district - the nerve centre of Haryana's politics - the BJP chief promised "sabka vikas" (inclusive development) and said the Khattar government was above caste considerations.
The bike rally, analysts say, is aimed at bolstering the morale of BJP cadres in Haryana - the state which was won for the first time by the party in 2014. The rally is scheduled to begin at 1 PM.
