The campaign for the seven-phase Lok Sabha Elections 2024 ends on Thursday, May 30. The results will be announced on June 4.

The PM, 73, will meditate at the Dhyan Mandapam, the hall at the Memorial, from the evening for May 30 to the evening of June 1, NDTV said in its report.

The Memorial has spiritual significance since Swami Vivekananda, after wandering across the country, is believed to have meditated here for three days on a rock located about 500 meters off the mainland, at the meeting point of the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal, and Arabian Sea.  Vivekananda is said to have attained enlightenment at this place.

The ruling alliance is challenged by the opposition parties led by the Congress under the banner of the INDIA bloc.

The seventh and the final phase of the Lok Sabha elections 2024 will be held on June 1. During the seventh phase of polling, voters from 57 Lok Sabha constituencies spread across eight states and UT will exercise their franchise.
