Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders in Bihar, including Sushil Kumar Modi, Nand Kishore Yadav, and Mangal Pandey, visited Patna's Gandhi Maidan on Saturday to review preparation for the upcoming 'Hunkar Rally' on October 27 during which Gujarat Chief Minister and party's 2014 Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is scheduled to address the people of Bihar.

"Narendra Modi's visit to Patna is expected to draw crowd from all parts of the state and we are making sure the program goes without a glitch," the former Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar said.

Yadav directed the workers to speed up work on the dais from where the Gujarat Chief Minister is expected to deliver his speech. He also asked the builders to raise the barricade to ensure smooth movement of the crowd with plenty of room for law enforcement officials.

Meanwhile, leader of the Janata Dal – U youth wing Pradeep Yadav, in a letter to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, urged him to ban the October 27 Hunkar Rally in Patna saying Modi's visit to Bihar was designed to instigate communal conflict in the state in an attempt to discredit the JD-U government.

Yadav also suggested arresting Narendra Modi if the BJP went ahead with the rally.

It's not clear if Nitish Kumar would in fact take heed of Yadav's warnings.
