New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s charisma & popularity is quite apparent from the rousing reception he gets at public events & gatherings.
However, one such incident of sloganeering turned embarrassing for the Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot at a project launch event in Nathdwara. Prime Minister’s intervention at this moment has become the talk of town and he is earning appreciation for the same, from many quarters.
Prime Minister was in Rajasthan’s Nathdwara today, where he launched & laid the foundation stone of several developmental projects amounting to Rs 5,500 crores. The projects will get a big impetus to infrastructure including the road & rail connectivity in the region.
How PM Modi came to Gehlot’s ‘rescue’
During the project launch event, as Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot moved to dais to speak about slew of projects, the crowd welcomed him with Modi Modi chants and kept shouting ‘Modi, Modi’.
When the crowd didn’t stop chanting his name, the Prime Minister himself signaled the crowd to calm down & keep quiet as this was disrupting Chief Minister’s speech.
It was at the intervention of Prime Minister that people stopped. Moments later, when the crowd again started chanting ‘Modi, Modi,’ the Prime Minster asked state BJP chief CP Joshi to instruct the people to calm down and maintain decorum.
Prime Minister’s gesture may be small but it is getting applause from many quarters for setting standards of righteousness.
