Jaipur: Under the BJP’s national program to evoke patriotism among citizens, the party’s Rajasthan unit took out ‘Tiranga Yatra’ in all eight assembly constituencies of Jaipur.

Amid a spectacular display of tricolor, BJP workers led by senior leaders raised slogans. However the lack of discipline was on full display at several places in the city. The BJP workers didn’t wear helmets while taking out the 20-km long Yatra in Adarsh Nagar constituency. The rally had been flagged off by BJP’s Rajasthan president Ashok Parnami and Jaipur MP Ramcharan Bohara. Hundreds of workers were not wearing helmet.
