Three days ahead of Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi's scheduled to visit the Rewari town, unidentified persons have blackened his hoardings installed in the town.
On the complaint, of Rewari BJP leaders, police have registered a case under unidentified persons and assured to take action in this case.
Notably, Modi would visit the Rewari on 15 September for addressing an ex-servicemen rally for the first time, ever since he was appointed as chairman of campaign committee. Former Army chief Gen. VK Singh has also given his consent to share the dias with Modi in Sunday rally.
To mark the Modi's arrival in Haryana, BJP leaders have installed hoardings at main chowks of Rewari town, entrance and exit points. Some unidentified persons on Wednesday night blackened the Modi's posters, which invited a sharp reaction from party leaders.
In a reaction, the district BJP leaders led by district president Satish Khola held a demonstration in front of mini-secretariat and handed over a memorandum to superintendent of police for swift action against the culprits. Terming the blackening of Modi's posters a handiwork of Congress leaders, Khola told media persons that Congress leaders are not able to digest the wave turning sides towards their party, by the mere presence of Narendra Modi.
Police said that they are probing the matter and appealed the public to remain cautious of any hearsay which prompt them to take law into their hands.
