Panaji:  BJP has claimed that it has garnered “tremendous” response among various minority groups who have expressed their eagerness about attending Narendra Modi's rally here on Sunday.

“The response from minorities for Modi's rally is tremendous. Almost 25,000 or 25 per cent of the nearly one lakh people who have registered themselves for attending the rally belong to minority groups,” state BJP spokesman Wilfred Mesquita told PTI last night.

BJP's social engineering helped it wrest power from Congress in the state in 2012 when the saffron outfit fielded a number of minority candidates and the gamble paid off.  

Mesquita, a former revenue minister, said people wanted to be part of Modi's public meeting which will set the tone for campaigning in the coastal state for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.
