The Prime Minister’s Gujarat Roadshow Begins a Day After The BJP Won Four States in a Landslide
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to his home state, which will end on Saturday.
On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi staged a spectacular roadshow in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, a day post his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won assembly elections in 4 of the 5 states where they were held in February and the first week of March.
The Gujarat branch of the BJP uploaded a video from the roadshow, in which the Prime Minister, dressed in all-white and wearing a saffron cap, is seen flashing a victory sign to supporters on both sides of the road.
The roadshow covered a total distance of 9 kilometres, starting at the Ahmedabad airport and ending in the state capital, Gandhinagar, at the BJP’s Gujarat headquarters, known as ‘Kamalam.’
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has moved his attention to poll-bound Gujarat, holding a huge roadshow in Ahmedabad on Friday, a day post the BJP won in Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Uttarakhand, and Manipur.
When his roadshow started from the airport to Kamalam, the BJP’s state headquarters in Gandhinagar, PM Modi travelled in an open car decked with flower garlands and waved to onlookers. The airport is about 10 kilometres from Kamalam.
PM Modi tweeted before leaving for his two-day tour that will end on Saturday: “Leaving for Gujarat, where I will be attending various programmes today and tomorrow. At 4 PM today will address a Panchayat Mahasammelan, where several representatives from Panchayati Raj institutions will attend.”
PM Modi served as chief minister for four consecutive terms, from October 2001 to May 2014, while he departed after being chosen with his first term as Prime Minister. Throughout his stay, he would participate in a variety of activities. He’ll also likely sound the party’s bugle ahead of the state’s next assembly elections, which are expected to occur in December. Gujarat is a BJP stronghold, with the saffron party in office since 1995.
