May 28, 2024

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a dynamic roadshow amid a record turnout by the people of Bengal who were showering immense love and affection on him.

"The fervour in Kolkata is unimaginable. The enthusiasm of Kolkata is unparalleled. And, the support for @BJP4Bengal across Kolkata and West Bengal is unprecedented," the PM shared in a post on social media platform 'X'.

The massive roadshow in Kolkata exemplifies West Bengal's admiration for PM Modi and the support for BJP implying 'Fir ek Baar Modi Sarkar.'

Ahead of the roadshow, PM Modi prayed at the Sri Sri Sarada Mayer Bari in Baghbazar. It is the place where Holy Mother Sarada Devi stayed for a few years.

He then proceeded to pay his respects at the statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Concluding the roadshow, the PM paid floral tribute at the statue of Swami Vivekananda at the Vivekananda Museum, Ramakrishna Mission. It is the ancestral house of Swami Vivekananda.
