With the ruling BJP celebrating its Foundation Day on Friday and holding a massive rally of its party workers in Mumbai, the workers would be addressed by party President Amit Shah.
Meanwhile, BJP President Amit Shah earlier had been given a grand welcome at the airport.
He also chaired a meeting on Thursday itself with the core committee of the Maharashtra BJP to figure out a party’s political strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.
It is estimated that almost three lakh party workers from across the state are expected to attend the BJP’s conclave scheduled to be held in Bandra Kurla Complex between 11 am and 4 pm.
Shah and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will address the event.
But the event also has other consequences in that it resulted in traffic snarls on the Western Express Highway last night.
It is said that almost 25,000 local BJP workers took out a three-kilometre-long rally including 10,000 bikers and several car drivers to welcome him.>
