Prime Minister Narendra Modi was welcomed by the BJP Mahila Morcha cadre at the venue of a BJP rally here on Monday, days after Parliament passed the women’s reservation bill.
Modi reached the meeting venue in Dadiya village in Vatika on the outskirts of Jaipur from a nearby helipad in an open-top vehicle escorted by activists of the BJP’s women wing who raised slogans in his support.
Modi also greeted people by waving at them.
The rally will mark the culmination of four ‘Parivartan Yatras’ that the BJP took out in the poll-bound state. Assembly elections are scheduled to be held in Rajasthan in the next few months.
