On January 5, Prime Minister Narendra Modi might sound the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) electoral trumpet in Punjab. Former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh may also be present on stage at this time. The Prime Minister is expected to address a gathering after inaugurating the Ferozepur satellite centre of the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMR) in Chandigarh, Punjab. On Tuesday, BJP sources revealed this information.
This will be Prime Minister Modi’s first rally in Punjab since the central government abolished three controversial agriculture legislation. A large number of Punjabi farmers camped on Delhi’s various borders in protest of the agricultural laws, and they continued to press the central government to repeal them.
On November 19, the administration finally reversed its position on agricultural laws. In addition, when announcing the formation of a committee on Minimum Support Price, PM Modi demanded that the farmers end their agitation (MSP).
Following that, these statutes were repealed by a bill introduced on the first day of Parliament’s winter session. Farmers withdrew their agitation conditionally after the bill was passed.
According to BJP officials, Modi’s rally would kick off the BJP’s and its partners’ election campaign. The BJP and Amarinder Singh’s Punjab Lok Congress have formed an alliance. According to BJP sources, Amarinder Singh may also attend this event.
Apart from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Captain Amarinder Singh, Punjab’s election in-charge and Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, as well as his Union Cabinet colleagues Hardeep Singh Puri and Meenakshi Lekhi, are expected to attend the event.
In Delhi on Monday, Amarinder Singh met with Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President JP Nadda. During this time, there was a controversy about seat distribution. According to sources, the BJP would be the senior coalition partner in Punjab, with more than half of the 117 seats up for grabs.
