“The kind of enthusiasm shown by the people of UP for today's virtual rally shows their commitment to the development of the state. In this rally to be held at 1.30 pm, there will be an opportunity to address the voters of Saharanpur, Shamli, Muzaffarnagar, Baghpat and Gautam Budh Nagar,” PM Modi said in a tweet.

Arrangements have been made for the screening of the rally at 7,878 booths in 98 places. As many as 49,000 people are expected to listen to this virtual address, including booth presidents, panna pramukhs or people in charge of voters' list, and the beneficiaries of government schemes, according to a rough estimate by party’s virtual rally in-charge Anoop Gupta. All candidates in the constituencies would also be connected to the rally.

The BJP is pitted against the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party-Rashtriya Lok Dal (SP-RLD) alliance in western Uttar Pradesh.

The Election Commission (EC) had banned physical rallies and road shows in the elections, allowing virtual and door-to-door campaigns considering spike in COVID-19 cases. The ban will be reviewed today.
