This is the beginning of a new India, says PM Modi in his speech
Celebrating the BJP’s historic win in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today walked to the BJP headquarters in Lutyens' Delhi.
This was the first public appearance of the Prime Minister after poll results in five states came out yesterday.
As PM's motorcade arrived at the roundabout on Ashoka Road near Le Meridien Hotel, he was greeted by supporters who had gathered on either side of the road.
A few metres away from the roundabout, he got off his car and walked towards the BJP headquarters to attend the party's Parliamentary Board meeting.
Surrounded by security personnel, Modi waved at his supporters during his 'victory walk' amid shower of petals and chants of 'Modi, Modi'.
In view of Prime Minister's roadshow, a multi-layer security cover was put in place on Ashoka Road with hundreds of personnel of Delhi Police, CISF and BSF as well as NSG commandos deployed.
BJP workers danced to the drum beats outside the party headquarters, where Modi was felicitated, waved party flags and shouted slogans of 'Har Har Modi, Ghar Ghar Modi'.
BJP supporters threw 'gulal' (Holi colours) at each other
to celebrate party's victory in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. They also came with colourful balloons.
Police put up barricades on both sides of Ashoka Road in order to make a clear passage for the Prime Minister's arrival at the BJP headquarters.
Outside the party office, a large LCD screen was installed for the people who had gathered to hear the Prime Minister.
