BJP to charge Rs 10 for Modi's Bangalore rally

The BJP plans to charge Rs 10 from party workers who want to attend the proposed public rally of the party's prime ministerial candidate here next month. "The party is considering to charge Rs 10 for the rally and this decision is almost final," a senior party functionary said on Sunday. The CM is slated to address the public meeting in the second half of next month that the party's state unit hopes would kickstart preparations for next year's general elections. Senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu is the rally in-charge, and the party is scouting for a suitable location for the rally which it expects would attract a five-lakh strong crowd. Rs 5 tickets were sold to the public for Modi's programme in Hyderabad earlier this year, and the party would charge a similar amount for party workers for his September 25 rally in Bhopal.
