Despite the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) being highly confident of a strong return in the ongoing 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the party is vigorously working to stay prominent in voters’ minds as the final phase approaches. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, having already addressed over 150 rallies and conducted numerous roadshows, is set to spearhead the party’s efforts in the seventh phase.


Prime Minister Modi’s Campaign Schedule

On May 28, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold three rallies, starting in Godda, Jharkhand, for BJP candidate Nishikant Dubey. This will be followed by two rallies in West Bengal, a critical battleground for the BJP. Later that evening, Modi will lead a roadshow in Kolkata, focusing on the North Kolkata constituency.

On the following day, May 29, Modi will campaign in Diamond Harbour, a stronghold of the ruling Trinamool Congress. TMC General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee, the current Member of Parliament, is contesting from this seat. Modi will then proceed to Odisha for rallies in Balasore, Mayurbhanj, and Kendrapada, where the BJP faces a direct challenge from the ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD).


Amit Shah’s Nationwide Campaign Trail

Home Minister Amit Shah has been actively campaigning nationwide, despite being a Lok Sabha candidate from Gujarat. On May 28, Shah will campaign in Odisha, holding rallies in Bhadrak, Jajpur, and Jagatsinghpur. The next day, May 29, he will be in Uttar Pradesh, with rallies planned in Ballia, Deoria, and Maharajganj. Shah will conclude his campaign on May 30 with a rally in Robertsganj before traveling to Madurai and Tirupati for darshan, marking the end of the BJP’s campaign.


JP Nadda’s Strategic Campaign Stops

BJP National President JP Nadda will visit Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency, Varanasi, on May 27. On May 28, Nadda will campaign in his home state of Himachal Pradesh, covering locations like Shimla, Mandi, and Hamirpur. On May 29, he will hold rallies in Dumka and Godda, followed by a rally in West Bengal. Nadda will finish his campaign on the final day in Punjab, with planned rallies in Faridkot, Amritsar, and Anandpur Sahib.


BJP’s Campaign Strategy and Final Voting Phase

Prime Minister Modi remains confident in leading his party to a third consecutive term with the slogan “Abki Baar 400 Par.” Various top party leaders, including MPs, have been tasked with not only campaigning but also managing the campaign’s backend operations and other critical election-related issues.


The 2024 Lok Sabha elections, which commenced with the first phase on April 19, will conclude with the final phase of voting on June 1. In this last phase, 55 Lok Sabha seats across eight states will go to the polls. This includes crucial states like West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar, which have participated in all seven phases. Notably, this phase includes the Kashi constituency, represented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in both 2014 and 2019.
