Signs in The Wind: Amit Shah’s Agra Rally Sees Low Attendance, BJP Members Hide Empty Chairs With Cloth
This is not the first instance in recent times when Shah's rally was ignored by the public.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah on Sunday, March 24, started campaigning for the party by holding a rally in Agra ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. However, pictures shared on social media suggest that very few people attended his rally.
The pictures of the rally posted by journalist Abisar Sharma on Twitter highlighted how the BJP members were forced to hide many chairs at the rally venue as they were empty.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also present at the rally today. It is noteworthy that Jammu residents gave Shah’s rally a miss on February 24, when he went to address them post-Pulwama attack. Similarly, the BJP president was reportedly left red-faced when no members of the general public turned up for a meeting organised by the party state unit in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh.
