PM Modi ditches mic to address huge gathering in Rajasthan; here's why
Ahmedabad, Sep 30: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday left people impressed after he refused to use a mic to address the huge gathering as he didn't want to violate any rule of using loudspeaker post 10 pm.
In a humble gesture, PM Modi apologised before the gathering for not being able to address and promised that he will come again in Sirohi.
"I got late in reaching. It is 10 pm. My conscience says that I should follow the rules and regulations. So, I apologise before you," PM Modi said speaking without a mic and loudspeaker.
"But, I want to promise you that I will come here again and will repay with interest the love and affection that you have given me," he said.
PM Modi then chanted the "Bharat Mata ki Jai" slogan, which was repeated by people.
Earlier, PM Modi held a rally in Abu road. The rally was aimed to give a message and to boost the morale of party workers in southern Rajasthan, which shares a border with the poll-bound Gujarat.
The Assembly elections in the Congress-ruled Rajasthan are also due later next year.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also offered prayers at the Ambaji temple in Gujarat's Banaskantha district. He visited the temple after speaking at a rally in the town.
