BJP begins offline registrations for Modi's Hyd rally

BJP on Monday began the offline registration of participants for the public meeting to be addressed by Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi on August 11.

The online registration, being done by collecting Rs 5 from each participant, began about a week ago, state BJP unit president G Kishan Reddy said. He took exception to the criticism being levelled by Union minister Manish Tewari and other Congress leaders against the party's move to collect Rs 5 from participants.

‘There is a debate on collecting five rupees. Congress leaders are sore over the growing popularity of Narendra Modi. Congress needs to understand that small donations used to be collected even when Mahatma Gandhiji and Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan. We are doing this to help the victims of Uttarakhand rains and to make the youth a part of this service initiative,’ Reddy said defending the collection.

Objecting to the remarks of Congress leader Shakeel Ahmed that some terror outfits were formed after Gujarat riots, he asked whether terrorism did not exist prior to 2002.
