Prime Minister Narendra Modi would address a farmers rally in Belagavi on February 27 as part of efforts to create awareness about his government’s pro-farmer initiatives, including new crop insurance scheme.
Initially the Belagavi BJP had fixed CpEd ground for the rally but with the number of anticipated members at the rally the police asked the organisers to search for an alternate venue as it would create a lot of traffic chaos as many roads leading to the venue will have to be shut which will cause a lot of inconvenience to the citizens at large.
Sources said that the police have visited Angadi Institute of Technology and management on Savgaon road but the same has not yet been announced.
The rally would be the third in the series of ‘Kisan Sammelans’ planned country-wide. The other two would be held in Madhya Pradesh and Odisha.
