PM returned as barely 700 people turned up for rally: Punjab CM Channi

Chandigarh, 6/1: Barely 700 people turned up for the BJP rally and that forced Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “retrace his steps” and later the blame was pinned on the state government citing security threats, said Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Channi on Thursday.

Challenging those questioning the nationalistic credentials of Punjab, Channi said that “Punjabis have never ever shied away from making sacrifices for the nation and are as patriotic as any other people in the country”.


Referring to Wednesday’s incident of the Prime Minister having to go back without addressing the crowd at Ferozepur, the Chief Minister said in Machhiwara town that barely 700 people turned up at the rally site which forced the Prime Minister to return.
