On stage along side PM Modi were Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Nirmala Sitharaman. This is PM Modi's first visit to Amethi after coming to power in 2014, in the constituency which has remained loyal to the Gandhi family for long. PM Modi previously visited Amethi on May 5, 2014 and the BJP, which had fielded party leader Smriti Irani against Mr Gandhi in 2014 general election, had managed three lakh votes. Ms Irani has been nurturing the constituency since and is expected to contest again in the coming poll, expected to be held in April-May. Earlier today, PM Modi was in Bihar's Patna sharing a stage with Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at the NDA's Sankalp rally.
