There were banners and flags of Congress everywhere. Shouts of ‘Pilot you fight we are with you’ reverberated everywhere.
There was frenzy among fans to meet Raj Babbar and Nagma. At the end of the rally, Pilot addressed supporters and said that time has come when people are ready to bring a change and bypolls will make clear that they do not want a corrupt government.
Later, Pilot along with the star campaigners went to Naya Bazaar and addressed a public gathering. He said that BJP morally and emotionally knows that it has lost the elections because people have compared the work of the two parties.
“I went to Pushkar to offer prayers in the Brahma Temple and during these visits I found that people of Ajmer are terrorised and their faces are full of anger and frustration. That shows how they dislike BJP government,” Raj Babbar said.
He further said that people trusted BJP in Uttar Pradesh and now number of rapes and loots has increased there and people are realizing they took a wrong decision.
