Shah pointed out that Haryana was infamous for rampant corruption and maladministration in the tenure of previous governments but the BJP regime, headed by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, provided a corruption-free and transparent government. Acording to reports, hundreds of bikers wearing saffron colour helmets, clothes were on bikes on the way to Jind. The state BJP had asked workers to come to the rally on bikes.
The Jat leaders had been pressing the Haryana government to give more reservation in jobs to members of their community and withdraw cases against protesters, who indulged in violence and arson during the Jat agitation in February 2016. BJP government in Haryana assured the NGT that only motorcycles with valid Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates will be allowed in the rally. "Even after four years, opponents can not accuse the Modi government of corruption", Shah said at his "Yuva Hunkar" rally in Haryana's Jind.
BJP national president Amit Shah will be holding a massive rally in Haryana's Jind today. "If they do not keep their promise, we will make sure that not even Narendra Modi himself can hold a rally in Haryana".
The bike rally, analysts say, is aimed at bolstering the morale of BJP cadres in Haryana - the state which was won for the first time by the party in 2014.More news: Gov. Rauner: budget proposal would plug hole in state's pocketbook

The Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarkashan Sanghrash Samiti (AIJASS) led by Yashpal Malik made a decision to call off strike during Shah's visit.
Thousands of security personnel, including Haryana Police and para-military forces, kept a strict watch at the rally venue, areas surrounding it and Jind district and nearby areas.
Khattar was personally overseeing the arrangements along with state party president Subhash Barala and Haryana BJP party in-charge Anil Jain.
Meanwhile, scores of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) workers were detained after they showed black flags as a mark of protest against the rally. The Jat agitators had announced that planned to reach Jind in tractor-trolleys to disrupt the bike rally.
