Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a youth rally in Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi district on Saturday, kicking off the governing Bharatiya Janata Party’s election campaign.
“I’m looking forward to participating in the @BJYM Yuva Vijay Sankalp Rally in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, today with our spirited Karyakartas. The NDA administration has launched a number of efforts to strengthen our Yuva Shakti and make sure they are independent, “PM Modi tweeted something.
Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) is hosting the “Yuva Vijay Sankalp Rally” at the Paddal Maidan in Mandi, according to the news agency.
According to Tejasvi Surya, national president of BJYM, over a lakh youth from all across Himachal Pradesh would attend this event.

A senior delegation from the Election Commission of India (ECI), headed by Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar, is in Himachal Pradesh for three days to assess election readiness.

The terms of the assembly of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh will expire on February 23, 2023, and January 8, 2023, respectively. The electoral authority may call elections at any time within six months of the conclusion of any House’s five-year term.
CEC Rajiv Kumar and Election Commissioner Anup Chandra Pandey are most likely to visit Gujarat on Monday to assess the level of readiness, according to the news agency.
Before the announcement of polls, the Election Commission frequently travels to states where voting will take place.
Himachal Pradesh held elections on November 9, while Gujarat had two rounds of voting on December 9 and 14.
Since 1998, the BJP has held sway in Gujarat, and the primary opposition Congress came perilously close to ousting it in the most recent assembly elections in 2017.
The BJP overcame the Congress in Himachal Pradesh in 2017 to take office.
The AAP is attempting to establish a presence in both Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh while the Congress is preparing to take against the BJP in both states.
