DPCC president JP Agarwal said that such expenditure was reflective of the party's "culture". "There is disconnection between what BJP says and what it does. They talk about issues affecting the poor people but see the way they are splurging money for the rally," Agarwal said.

AAP alleged that money earned through "illegal means" is being spent for the rally. "Money collected through loot of public funds is being used for the rally," Arvind Kejriwal said.

AAP leader and spokesperson Manish Sisodia said that they should reveal the source from where they are getting the money. According to a report, 73 to 75 percent of their funding is from unknown sources.

Senior BJP leader Vijender Gupta, however, rejected the allegations and said that contribution by party workers have helped the party make the arrangements.

Asked about budget for the rally, Gupta said, “Some of the arrangements have been made by the party's district units. We cannot give a proper figure."

The city unit of BJP had on Tuesday unveiled a "high-decibel 360 degree publicity campaign" to ensure maximum impact of Modi's rally in assembly poll-bound Delhi. The party plans to put up 100 LED screens across the city to show Modi's speech live besides making elaborate arrangements for those who will be going to the venue at Japanese park in Rohini.
