Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi would take on the central government on “existing inept security policies” at his scheduled rally of ex-servicemen in Rewari on Sunday. This was stated by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Haryana spokesperson Lalit Batra in a press conference at the party office here on Friday.

He said besides Modi, former Uttarakhand chief minister and former Army man BC Khanduri, party state president Ram Bilas Sharma, Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) supremo Kuldeep Bishnoi, rally convener and national spokesperson for the party Capt Abhimanyu would remain present on the dais.

He said that other than politicians, 32 former army officers above the rank of major general would also be seen sharing stage with Modi, who is also the chairman of the party's campaign committee.

Former army chief Gen VK Singh would also be present at the rally.

Responding to a media query, he said that Modi's speech would be elaborating the security lapses and related policies of the Congress government and would also throw light on the mishandling of ex-servicemen by the current regime.

On the preparation of the rally, he said that it would be held in 24,000 square metre and special provisions had been made in Rewari to prevent traffic chaos.
