Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday addressed a massive rally in Varanasi, his constituency in Uttar Pradesh. The rally was attended by about 26,000 BJP workers, what’s even more surprising than this large number is Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought his own lunch because everyone was reportedly asked to bring their own tiffin.
PM Modi addressed thousands of BJP workers at a large ground in the temple city. The Prime Minister reportedly said he had also brought his own food, since “I am a karyakarta (party worker) too”.
“Such equality is only possible in the BJP,” the party tweeted on Thursday, along with photographs of the meeting.
This is PM Modi’s first visit since he announced demonetisation on November 8. Though many had brought lunch for PM Modi but he decided to pack his own.
During his rally, PM Modi reportedly urged party workers to propagate the positive impact of note ban and spread awareness about mobile banking. He also hit out at Congress and its Vice-President Rahul Gandhi who had accused PM Modi of corruption.
