Lok Sabha elections 2024: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday conducted a roadshow in Patna, Bihar.

Bihar chief minister and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar, deputy CM and state BJP president Samrat Choudhary, and BJP’s Lok Sabha candidate Ravi Shankar Prasad were perched beside Modi as he waved at the crowd.

PM Modi, who stood atop a vehicle painted in the hue of saffron and bedecked with flowers and images of the leader and cutouts of the lotus, covered a distance of about a kilometre and a half in the roadshow.

Modi became the first prime minister to hold a roadshow anywhere in Bihar.

He charmed the crowd with his humility when he bowed down with folded hands to greet groups of priests who stood on the road, performing an “aarati” in his honour.

The roadshow, just a day ahead of fourth phase of voting, marks yet another episode in the PM’s intensive campaign in the state.

The BJP, which depends heavily on the prime minister’s persona in elections, had demonstrably worked hard to make “The Modi Show”, the name given to the Patna event, a grand success.

The vehicle, on which PM Modi stood, followed a swarm of women supporters, dressed in saffron saris with turbans of the same shade on their heads, besides badges inscribed with the lotus pinned on their dresses.

PM Modi arrived in Patna on Sunday evening, after a day of poll campaign in the adjoining state of West Bengal. He was greeted at the airport by leaders such as Bihar deputy CM Vijay Kumar Sinha, assembly Speaker Nand Kishore Yadav and the BJP’s state general secretary incharge Bhikhu Bhai Dalsania.

The PM drove straight to Bhattacharjee Road, the point of commencement of the roadshow which concluded at Udyog Bhavan, a stone’s throw from the historic Gandhi Maidan where Modi delivered his famous maiden speech in Bihar more than eight years ago.
