Namo's 3 lakh kms campaign

PICS :  Narendra Modi travelled over 3 lakh kms during his campaign

As the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections ended, Narendra Modi seems to have created a record of sorts by travelling over 3,00,000 kms and holding 5827 public meetings, mixing traditional methods of holding rallies with innovative use of technology, the party claimed. Termed by the BJP as "one of the largest" mass outreach in India's electoral history, Modi addressed 437 public meetings in 25 states besides 1350 3-D rallies since September 15, when he held his public rally after being declared as the party's Prime Ministerial candidate. The total number of his public meetings stood at 5827, which included his 4000 'chai pe charcha', in which he interacted with groups of people across several cities connected to him by video-link, and two mega road shows in Varanasi and Vadodra, the two LS seats he is contesting from.
