Pm Modi’s security breached during Bjp roadshow in Karnataka
On Saturday, Modi also inaugurated the Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (SMSIMSR) and the Sri Sathya Sai Rajeswari Memorial Block, a completely free medical college and hospital, at Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli.
There was a security breach during the BJP road show in Davanagere, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attending during his visit to the poll-linked state of Karnataka on Saturday. Modi was in the state to inaugurate a new metro line in Bengaluru and a free medical college and attend the Vijay Sankalp rally. Here are some highlights of his visit.
Security breached at Davanagere rally
Prime Minister Modi visited the BJP district headquarters in Davangere town and addressed a public meeting there to mark the climax of the party’s campaign rally – ‘Vijay Sankapla Yatra’.
While on a roadshow, the prime minister’s security was breached after a man tried to run towards his convoy. The man was arrested by local police.
Speaking to the Vijay Sankalp Yatra Maha Sangam on Saturday, Modi said Karnataka had, for a long time, been ruled by opportunistic and selfish governments which affected the state.
“That is why stable BJP governance is necessary for the development of the state,” Modi said.
Joined by former Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and CM Basavaraj Bommai, the Prime Minister waved to the crowd of people gathered for his rally. A total of 10 lakh people were expected to participate, according to BJP officials.
Inauguration of the new Whitefield metro line in Bangalore
Constructed at a cost of around Rs 4,250 crore, the metro is expected to improve ease of mobility and reduce traffic congestion in the city, the statement said.
During the inauguration, Modi rode the new metro line alongside railway workers and Bommai.
Floral tribute at Mr. Visvesvaraya Memorial in Muddenahalli
During his visit, Prime Minister Modi paid homage to the 19th Diwan of Mysore Kingdom, Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya at his birthplace at Muddenahalli in Chikkaballapura district.
Accompanied by Bommai, Modi paid floral tributes at the memorial of M Visvesvaraya – a visionary, civil engineer, administrator and statesman – and later toured the museum dedicated to him, which includes some of his belongings.
Free medical school and hospital
The rurally located institute will start operating from the 2023 academic year and provide free medical education and quality medical care to all, according to the statement.
