Narendra Modi, ML Khattar ensured corruption-free governance: Amit Shah

The bike rally was led by BJP president Amit Shah, who rode pillion to the party's state unit chief Subhash Barala. Acording to reports, hundreds of bikers wearing saffron colour helmets, clothes were on bikes on the way to Jind.

The inclusion of 1 Lakh bikes in the rally has raised some objections, chiefly from the National Green Tribunal, which, responding to a petition, asked the center to respond why they are using so many vehicles for the rally.

Interestingly, ahead of the mega rally, Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar on Wednesday rode a motorcycle to review preparations for the rally and later tweeted a photo of the same. Addressing the Yuva Hunkar rally in Jind, largely seen as a precursor to the launch of assembly elections campaign as also general elections campaign, Shah indicted the previous Congress government in Haryana for ignoring the state on the devlopement front and leaving it in unemployment and agrarian crisis.

It may be recalled that ahead of the rally, the Haryana Government had announced to withdraw 70 FIRs registered against 822 Jat agitators in connection with the February 2016 Jat quota stir violence.

Apart from NGT reservations, the Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarkashan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) has also declared that it is going to try and disrupt the rally. The BJP chief also said the present Haryana CM Khattar has a blot-free career.

Saini said he would not attend a public rally to be addressed by BJP president, Amit Shah, at Jind tomorrow. Armed jawans could be seen in different parts of Jind and some adjoining towns, including roads leading to the venue at Pandu Pindara village, on the outskirts of the Jind city. Jind is considered to be the nerve center of Haryana politics.
