"The BJP has installed hundreds of NaMo tea stalls across Bihar to highlight Modi's humble background. Modi crackers have been introduced into the market," reported CNN-IBN on Saturday.
"More than 14 trains and 3,000 buses have been booked. Hotels in Patna have been blocked en masse.
"The BJP has installed 10 food stalls in Patna to provide free food packets to over 10 lakh expected visitors," said the news channel.
A huge steel stagee with a 30-feet electronic screen has been erected at Gandhi Maidan, the venue of the rally.
As many as 30 screens have been set up across the ground for making sure everyone gets a view of Modi even from a distance.
"Modi may not understand Bhojpuri himself but these days his Bhojpuri CDs are being played at every tea stall in Bihar marketing the BJP's much hyped 'Hunkar rally'," said CNN-IBN.
Pertinently, this rally is BJP's first rally in Bihar after the state's ruling Janata Dal-United (JD-U) snapped its 17-year-old alliance with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
