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

Police briefly detains Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Thursday lavishly praised the Manohar Lal Khattar-led government for its "corruption-free rule in Haryana" and sent out a clear message that "development and scam-free governance" will be the poll plank of the party in the next year's Lok Sabha and assembly polls.

Former Janta Dal-United minister Sharad Yadav said BJP organising a mega rally in Haryana's Jind is just a political stunt and will not benefit the nation.

According to reports, Shah was clicked riding a bike on his way with party workers to the "Yuva Hunkar Rally" venue in Jind. Congress leader Ashok Tanwar was among the detained people.

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. 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.

CM Khattar had personally reviewed the arrangements along with state party president Subhash Barala and Haryana BJP party in-charge Anil Jain.

Saini said he would not attend a public rally to be addressed by BJP president, Amit Shah, at Jind tomorrow.

A few Companies of paramilitary forces have also reached Jind. Police and security forces have been put on alert to keep the situation under control.

Haryana government had recently given nod to the withdrawal of 70 FIRs registered in connection with the February 2016 Jat quota stir violence. Main opposition INLD had announced it will show black flags and balloons to protest failure of the BJP government on various fronts including the SYL canal issue.

The bike rally, analysts say, is aimed at bolstering the morale of BJP cadres in Haryana - the state which was won for the first time by the party in 2014.
