As several states battle a scorching heatwave with temperatures soaring between 41 and 45 degrees Celsius, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has intensified his election campaign, holding four rallies daily and covering an average distance of 3,500 kilometers each day.


Relentless Campaign Schedule

Prime Minister Modi’s hectic schedule includes four planned events on Monday alone, beginning with a public meeting in Karnataka followed by three in Maharashtra. Starting his day in Karnataka’s Bagalkote, he will proceed to Maharashtra’s Solapur, Satara, and Pune, covering a distance of over 3,650 kilometers throughout the day. Despite the blistering afternoon heat, he continues his engagements, with only one evening rally in Pune.


Sunday’s Marathon Campaign

On Sunday, PM Modi conducted four public meetings in Karnataka, starting from Belagavi at 11 am and concluding in Ballari at 5 pm. Addressing the scorching conditions in Uttar Kannada, he rallied the crowd with fervor, emphasizing national issues and BJP achievements. By the end of the day, he had traveled approximately 4,300 kilometers.


Varied Engagements

Saturday saw a relatively lighter schedule with two evening rallies in Maharashtra’s Kohlapur and South Goa, both battling extreme heat conditions. Friday witnessed a more diverse itinerary, with three rallies and a roadshow spanning West Bengal, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. Starting early in the morning from North Malda in West Bengal, Modi traversed through Bihar targeting opposition parties before concluding the day with a roadshow in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly.


Intensifying Campaign

As the Lok Sabha election of 2024 progresses, BJP sources hint at a further intensification of Modi’s campaign schedule, promising more rigorous engagements in the coming weeks.
