PM Modi holds massive roadshow to spur party workers before elections


Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a visit to poll-bound Karnataka, held a mega roadshow in Kalaburagi on Tuesday. People queued up on both sides of the road through which the Prime Minister’s cavalcade passed and cheered for him. They also showered flower petals on him. While riding on the top of a truck, PM Modi greeted people by waving his hands.
In a major boost to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s election campaign in Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held massive roadshows and public meetings in the poll-bound state over the past few days. PM Modi held mega roadshows in Mysuru and Bengaluru last month.
The BJP’s challenge in Karnataka is to retain power, for which party president JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah are having massive campaigns.
Notably, Karnataka is the only southern state where the BJP is in power.
“The Karnataka elections are also being considered as the semi-finals of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. That’s why the BJP is showing more focus on Karnataka than any other state,” sources said.
The BJP is seeking a second term in the state and has exuded confidence in returning to power with a full majority.
