On Saturday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicked out his 26-kilometer roadshow in Bengaluru to promote the Bharatiya Janata Party’s candidates for the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections on May 10.
Party insiders estimate that it will take roughly 3.5 hours to go from Someshwar Bhavan RBI Ground in Bengaluru South to Malleshwaram’s Sankey Tank for the roadshow.
They stated that Modi’s roadshow today would travel through a dozen different Assembly segments in south and central Bengaluru.
Tejasvi Surya, an MP for Bengaluru South, and P C Mohan, an MP for Bengaluru Central, accompanied the PM. Tens of thousands of people are anticipated to congregate along the route, therefore extensive preparations have been taken, including the installation of barricades, according to official sources.
On both sides of the road, BJP flags waved proudly, and thousands of party members and supporters dressed in saffron shawls and caps added to the festive atmosphere.
Modi will take part in the road show in a custom-built car, and cultural teams are stationed all along the route.
On Sunday, however, the distance covered by the roadshow will be far less, at just 10 kilometres between the Kempegowda statue in Thippasandra and Trinity circle.
Modi’s two-day roadshow in Bengaluru was altered by the BJP on Friday to accommodate the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), with the longer event taking place today and the shorter one on May 7.
