Elections are approaching in Punjab. With this, the BJP focused on the state. The tour sparked interest as the Prime Minister was visiting Punjab for the first time since the repeal of the cultivation laws. The BJP is planning to contest the Assembly elections in Punjab anyway. Analysts have also heard that the cultivation laws have been repealed accordingly. Anyway, the farmers breathed a sigh of relief as the laws were repealed.
In this context, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will tour the state of Punjab today (Wednesday). This is Prime Minister Modi’s first visit to Punjab since the repeal of the Agriculture Act. The Prime Minister is visiting the state for the first time in two years.
Prime Minister Modi on a state visit
Officials made all the arrangements in the backdrop of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the state of Punjab. Gajendrasingh Shekhawat, in-charge of Punjab BJP affairs, closely monitored the arrangements. Rana Gurmeet Sodhi, who recently joined the BJP from the Congress, also assisted in the arrangements.
About 70 per cent of the population of Ferozepur, where the Prime Minister’s meeting will be held, are Hindu. With that the whole town was lit up with prime ministerial banners. The entire courtyard was festooned with amber and green banners.
Prime Minister Modi will fly to Bhutinda from Delhi. From there take a helicopter to Ferozepur PM. The Prime Minister will then proceed to the National Martyrs’ Memorial along the Husseinwala border. Prime Minister Modi will pay tributes to freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev Samadhi. Prime Minister Modi also paid tributes to the martyrs during his visit there in 2015. However, the people of Punjab are looking forward to this trip. What Modi is going to say has become a topic of discussion.
Some farmers’ unions in Punjab are protesting against Prime Minister Modi’s visit.
