He touched the feet and took blessings of female proponent Annapurna Shukla. She later said she blessed him to continue with his excellent work and wished him all success. Modi was accompanied by a galaxy of top BJP and NDA leaders in a massive show of strength for the country’s ruling alliance.
Bihar Chief Minister and JDU chief Nitish Kumar, Union minister and LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan, Shiv Sena supremo Uddhav Thackeray and Shiromani Akali Dal patron Parkash Singh Badal were with Modi at the Collectorate as Modi filed his papers. BJP leaders, including party president Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and senior Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj, were also present on occasion.
