PM Narendra Modi will start campaign on 6 January from Kerala
December 29, 2018
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will start off the campaign for general elections in 2019 from Kerala.
As per reports, PM Modi will arrive in Pathanamthitta in Kerala on 6 January and from there he will start addressing rallies to woo voters for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
At present Bharatiya Janata Party- BJP has only one legislator in the 140-member Kerala Assembly. The party is hoping to increase the number in the elections as Kerala has 20 Lok Sabha seats.
BJP has been working on its strategy for the election campaign and advertising agencies are being hired to publicize the work done by Modi led government in the last five years.
The campaign starting point from Pathanamthitta is being seen as a political move as the Sabarimala temple is also located in this district. Hindu devotees, political parties and various factions such as RSS and the Sangh Parivar have been protesting at the Sabarimala temple since a Supreme Court verdict in September.
The top court has ordered the lifting of ban on women aged between 10 and 50 from entering the temple premises. Since then, the state government has been trying to enforce the Supreme Court order and facing retaliation from all corners.
Social media users expressed their opinion about the campaign being launched from a sensitive area.
YamunaHarshavardhana @YamunaHarsha tweeted, "Is he going to campaign on religion in 2019? Did he campaign on religion ever? He offers prayers as per his religious faith...to you it is unsavoury that he is Hindu!"
