Bangalore: BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will address a rally in Bangalore on November 17. His party urged the Congress government of the state to arrange adequate security ahead of it.
The request comes after serial bomb blasts that targeted Modi's rally at Gandhi Maidan in Patna killing at least six people and injured more than 80.
Party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said, "We cannot forget the bomb blasts near BJP state office (in Bangalore) in April. Some members of the Coimbatore module were arrested in Puttur who planted these bombs as well as carried out targeted killings of five BJP leaders in Tamil Nadu and attacked LK Advani's rally in Coimbatore."
BJP would collect Rs 10 from party workers as entry fee for the rally, state leaders said.
