As per the available information, the lists of the workers attending the rally from the rural and urban areas of each district across the state will have to be submitted to the state BJP unit before February 22.

The BJP has been expecting around five lakh people, including workers of Shiromani Akali Dal. at the rally.

"The district unit presidents have been directed to maintain record of workers coming from different mandals. However, it would also help in identifying their workers from that of the Akali Dal present on the occasion", he said.
