Rajasthan BJP office-bearers on Tuesday convened a meeting at the Rajasthan BJP headquarters in Jaipur to discuss the preparations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposed visit to the state on November 1. Officials said that PM Modi will address a huge public meeting at Mangarh Dham in the tribal district of Banswara.
Mangarh is situated on a hill near Anandpuri in Banswara district on the Rajasthan-Gujarat border. Assembly elections are due in Gujarat this year while Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh will go to polls in 2023.
In such a situation, Modi’s visit to Mangarh will also play a big role in creating a new political equation in the tribal region of the three states of Gujarat, MP and Rajasthan. In the meeting held on Tuesday, state in-charge and national general secretary Arun Singh, co-in-charge Vijaya Rahatkar, state president Satish Poonia, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, MP C.P. Joshi, Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathod, MLA Vasudev Devnani and senior party leaders were present.
Rajendra Rathod, Deputy Leader of Opposition in Rajasthan told reporters that Mangarh is the land from where the freedom struggle started.
He said, now PM Modi’s visit will pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives. Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal said that in view of the proposed visit of PM Narendra Modi to Mangarh Dham, a meeting of state BJP office bearers was called on Tuesday.
He said, PM Narendra Modi’s program will be held in Mangarh Dham. In this Dham, 1500 Bhil tribals were martyred in a single day due to the bullets of the British. Now if PM will do any program in his memory, then the program will be big and the message will also be big.
There has been a demand for many decades that Mangarh Dham should be given the status of a national monument.
