Modi will be the face of BJP's campaign in the city and the party feels the rally will help it build a momentum for the election.

BJP has been out of power in Delhi for the past 16 years and its Delhi chief Satish Upadhyay said the party was confident of winning the polls with a clear majority this time with the help of Modi's charisma.

BJP president Amit Shah, national general (organisation) Ram Lal, Union ministers Arun Jaitely, M Venkaiah Naidu and Piyush Goyal will share the dais with Modi besides the seven party MPs from Delhi.

BJP has made a sitting arrangement of around 60,000 people at the venue, even as it has claimed that over one lakh people will be attending the rally.

"We are very confident that Delhiites will get a stable government by BJP after the polls. The rally will help in building the momentum for the party's victory," BJP's national vice president in-charge of Delhi Prabhat Jha said.

Asked if Modi will announce a full statehood for Delhi in Saturday's rally, Jha said, "We have already said in our manifesto that if BJP comes to power, we will make Delhi a full state. Let us first come to power, we will definitely work on it."

Senior BJP leaders said that through Modi's rally, party will also gauge the public mood which will help it prepare a strong-strategy for the assembly polls.

"We are very sure that BJP will definitely get the support of people in the upcoming Assembly polls as we got in Lok Sabha polls. The focus of this rally will only be development," Upadhyay said.

"We want more people from minority community to attend the rally of Modi ji under whose leadership, our country is developing well. We are expecting around 8,000-9,000 Muslims to attend the rally," said Atif Rasheed, president of BJP's Minority Morcha.

All district presidents have been asked by the party to arrange at least 15 buses full of people for the rally. BJP has also installed hoardings 'Chalo Chale Modi Ke Saath' across the national capital to draw more people to the venue.

At the venue, LCD screens have been installed so that people can watch Modi while delivering speech.

The reunification of the trifurcated Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) was on the BJP poll manifesto and could be one such decision.

The saffron party is leaving no stone unturned to return to power. Last December, as many as 200 party's MPs held corner meetings (nukkad sabhas) across the capital.

In order to woo voters in the upcoming assembly election, Delhi BJP has also decided to bank on celebrity MPs Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Khanna and Smriti Irani who will be addressing rallies in the city.
