Modi retiring at 75? He is going strong at the age of 73 with 141 rallies and road shows in the last 2 months.


One hundred and forty-one rallies and road shows – these will be the public events that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has attended in the past two months campaigning for the BJP, until he leaves Varanasi for the third time on May 14. Nominations were filed. This translates to the 73-year-old leader attending about three public events a day, which involves traveling thousands of kilometers.

An example of this will be seen on Sunday when the prime minister will hold four rallies in West Bengal, followed by a road show in Patna. On Monday, he will take part in three rallies in Patna before leaving for Varanasi where he will hold a big road show in the evening that could last more than four hours. The BJP is planning a massive campaign around the roadshow 'Hamar Modi, Hamar Kashi'.

On Tuesday morning, the Prime Minister will file his nomination papers from Varanasi and proceed to hold more public meetings during the day. The Prime Minister's campaign will continue till the end of May and may touch 180-190 events in total.

For Modi, age is just a number.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Saturday that Modi will complete his third term in 2029 and continue to lead the party and the country even before that. The Home Minister said, “There was no confusion in the party on this.

This came after AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal claimed that Modi will retire at the age of 75 next year and hand over the reins to Amit Shah. The Home Minister clarified that there is no such age limit of 75 years in the BJP constitution.

Big road show in Offing

Home Minister Amit Shah is in Varanasi to oversee arrangements for Prime Minister Modi's roadshow and nomination process. Senior BJP leader Sunil Bansal has also been camping in Varanasi for several days. Sources said the Prime Minister is expected to visit the Kashi Vishwanath Temple and the Kal Bhaero Temple during his two-day visit to Varanasi.

People from Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Bengali, Punjabi and other communities will be there to welcome Modi, showcasing India's diversity at various stages along the PM's roadshow route. During the road show, the Prime Minister will cover the five kilometer distance from Banaras Hindu University (BHU) gate to Kashi Vishwanath Corridor in about four hours.
