Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to embark on a nation-wide tour across all states of the country, starting from 14 January to the end of February.
The purpose of this widespread campaign ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections is to inform the people about the achievements of his government during the last nine years.
During this period, he will participate in public rallies, launch a variety of developmental projects, and lay the foundation stones for several large-scale initiatives.
The strategy is designed to foster all-round inclusive development across the country, with an emphasis on educating the populace about the government’s achievements and development schemes.
PM Modi's visits, backed by his trustworthiness and credibility, serve as an influential method for spreading information about the government's activities, according to the BJP sources cited by The New Indian Express.
Expectations are that bigger states such as Bihar and Uttar Pradesh will be visited 2-3 times, while smaller states should except at least one visit during this timeframe.
In line with this approach, a visit to West Champaran in Bihar is planned for PM Modi on 13 January, as the BJP concentrates on securing a significant number of Lok Sabha seats in the state.
Furthermore, the PM’s visit following the consecration ceremony at the Ram temple on 22 January is expected to send a strong message to the electorate in preparation for the 2024 elections. On 12 January, Prime Minister Modi will also visit Maharashtra to attend government functions and dedicate development projects.
The visits will encompass the inauguration of various government schemes and laying of foundation stone for new initiatives. Moreover, these visits will serve as a platform for the party to assess the public's mood by observing the attendance at public gatherings.
The Prime Minister's visits to attend government scheme inauguration events will encompass states such as Telangana, West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Kerala, among others.
These states hold significant influence in the formation of the Central government.
The anticipated visits, bearing considerable political importance, are projected to encompass over 150 Lok Sabha seats prior to the official announcement of the election dates.
