Jaipur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a public rally at a ground near VT Road in Mansarovar of Jaipur on May 1 ahead of the fifth phase of Lok Sabha polls 2019. Jaipur along with thirteen other Lok Sabha constituencies in Rajasthan will go to polls on May 6.

PM Modi will reach the ground around 5 pm on May 1. The administration is trying to identity a proper place to build a helipad near the venue so that the PM Modi could reach directly to the location in the helicopter, said BJP sources.

According to the BJP officials, the venue for PM Modi’s big rally in Jaipur was set for Sooraj Maidan near Adarsh Nagar in the city earlier. But considering the traffic issues in the walled city, the public rally will now be held at VT road ground. 

The supporters and workers of the party have started preparations for the PM’s visit.

The BJP workers of the region are conducting meetings to make the rally a success. Responsibilities are being allocated to the different teams of the party workers.

Also, former CM Vasundhara Raje will take out a road show in Jaipur on May 4. She will start her journey from the city’s Govind Dev Ji temple. The road show will conclude at Chandpole Hanuman temple. The party wants to cover the main areas of the walled city including Adarsh Nagar, Kishanpole and Hawa Mahal.

The party has pitched MP Ramcharan Bohra against Congress candidate Jyoti Khandelwal on Jaipur seat and former Olympic player and MP Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore has been pitched against former Olympic player Congress’s Krishna Poonia on Jaipur ruler seat.

The dates for upcoming Lok Sabha Elections were announced by Election Commission of India. Polling in Rajasthan on 25 seats will be held on April 29 (Phase 4) and May 6 (Phase 5). The results will be announced on May 23.
