Pillion-riding Amit Shah leads 1L strong rally in Jind, Haryana


Raj Kumar Saini, the BJP MP from Kurukshetra, has said that he will not attend the rally, and would announce the formation of a new political outfit soon.

As the party organised the rally to kickstart its campaign much ahead of next year's state Assembly elections, the BJP chief said, "The Congress has said that when Amit Shah comes, he should come with a progress report of four years".

The rally has commenced early morning in the district with various local BJP leaders seen enthusiastically riding their bikes to join the rally.
