Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday led a roadshow in Patna, a first for a sitting PM in Bihar’s capital. The event was part of the BJP’s campaign for the Lok Sabha elections.

Starting at the Income Tax office roundabout and ending at Udyog Bhavan near Gandhi Maidan, the roadshow passed through several areas of Patna. Security was heightened, with a ban on drones and restrictions on traffic.

Modi, joined by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and MP Ravi Shankar Prasad, moved through the city, where people gathered along the route. The roadshow ended with a visit to Takht Harmandir Patna Sahib.

The roadshow also featured cultural elements, with supporters in traditional attire and religious rituals being performed. Modi’s schedule included further campaign rallies in Hajipur, Muzaffarpur, and Saran.

The event highlighted the BJP’s efforts to make an impact in the elections. The roadshow has been a topic of discussion, with varying opinions on its effectiveness and the message it sends to voters.

Political parties reacted differently to Modi’s roadshow. The RJD, through Lalu Prasad Yadav, expressed skepticism about the impact of the roadshow. Former Congress spokesperson Gourav Vallabh suggested it might energize voters, while RJD spokesman Mritunjay Tiwary speculated that the roadshow was a response to unexpected election results.

The BJP defended the roadshow as a boost to their campaign, aiming to increase their vote share. Opposition parties have criticized the event, suggesting it indicates the BJP’s concern over issues like unemployment and inflation, which are affecting the youth and general populace. The roadshow has intensified the political climate in Bihar as the Lok Sabha elections approach.
