BJP President Amit Shah addressed the ‘Yuva Hunkar’ rally in Jind, Haryana on Thursday. Accompanied by hundreds of bikers Haryana’s Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar held a bike rally while traveling to the venue at Pandu Pindara village, where both the leaders addressed a public meeting.

The BJP chief slammed the previous Government led by the Congress party over unequal distribution of profits to farmers. He said, “the Congress Government did not provide farmers 50 percent profit to farmers on their input cost.” He claimed that demand had been fulfilled after Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power.

He countered Congress appeal to show the progress report saying, "The Congress has said that when Amit Shah comes, he should come with a progress report of four years. There is no need to give a report card to Congress, but we need to give details to the public of Haryana."

Addressing the rally, Shah said that Haryana is a land of warriors, youths, farmers, martyrs. He said that he offers his respects to them. "It is the land that has given foodgrains and soldiers to defend the country."

The All-India Jat Aarakshan Sangharsh Samiti after talks with CM Manohar Khattar and Union Minister Birender Singh on Sunday night withdrew their proposed protest against the rally. The other opposition parties, however, decided to protest in a peaceful manner.

Opposition members released black balloons in Jind near the rally site to showcase their protest.

While the BJP is pretending the glory of the success of the Hunkar rally, photos of empty chairs at the venue are being virally shared on social media.
