NDA claimed that its ‘Sankalp rally’ at Gandhi Maidan in Patna on March 3 would be historic with largest ever participation of the people than any such event earlier organized by any party in the past.
The Sankalp Rally of the three Bihar NDA partners is purported to repose full faith and confidence in PM Narendra Modi for handling the post-Pulwama crisis, which culminated in India’s “nonmilitary” air strikes on Balakot in Pakistan to demolish the terror, state presidents of the parties said on Friday.

Singh said the NDA partners have made arrangements for the participants at 14 places in Patna, while the MLAs, MLCs and MPs of BJP, JD(U) and LJP have made their own separate arrangements for their people.
The participants would start turning up for the rally from Saturday itself and it would be “hujoom of people” walking on the roads to Gandhi Maidan on Sunday, Singh said.
Explaining the purpose of the rally, state BJP chief Rai said, “The sea of humanity would be present at the rally to register their blessings to PM Modi for effective handling of the post-Pulwama crisis that the country faced.”
