Bhopal was very much excited weeks before the arrival of Modi for the Karyakarta Mahakumbh. Everywhere posters and banners of Modi on the streets of Bhopal were there. Though the rally was for the Bhartiya Janta Party workers, common people of Bhopal were also very excited for it. People on the streets and shops could be heard discussing Modi and Karyakarta Mahakumbh.
I also being a Modi fan was very excited and planned to listen to him from the rally spot, the Jamburi Maidan, which is around 4 km away from my home. I planned to go with my friend Anand Sharma who is also the leader of BJP MP legal cell. Since the place was very near to our home and Modi’s speech time was 3.30 PM, we thought that we can reach there easily, but we were wrong. There was a huge traffic jam, workers were coming in bus. Thousands of policemen and other security forces were deployed.
Me and Anand Bhai with some more friends started our journey to Jamburi maidan in our car. We tried to take the shortest way but police had barricaded it, and was allowing only VIPs. Police asked us to go through another way which was comparatively longer route. This new way was packed with too much traffic. Vehicles were moving at a snail place. We came to know that there was no space to park the car on the rally site, so we had to park our vehicle midway only, which was around 3 km away from the rally place. On the way we met legal cell president who gave us VVIP passes that made our task easier and by using that pass we reached easily around 11.30 AM.
The atmosphere was very cheered up and lakhs of BJP workers were there. Many food stalls were set up on the rally site to provide breakfast to workers. We reached near the stage. Many senior leaders of MP BJP like Babulal Gaur , Narendra Tomar etc were sitting there. At around 12.30, the crowd started shouting Modi
Modi looking at the sky.
It was Modi in the helicopter. The helipad was very near. The crowd was giving a heroic welcome to Modi. We were able to capture Narendra Modi in our camera after he came out of the helicopter and started moving towards the stage.
That time LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj , Murli Manohar Joshi , Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Arun Jaitley also came on the stage. All the leaders gave a standing thanks to the crowd for their arrival and waved at them.
We listened to the speech of Advani ji. People could be heard shouting Modi PM, Modi PM slogans while other leaders were giving the speech. The crowd increased very much after Modi’s arrival. It would have been difficult for us to reach home if we had listened to Narendra Modi’s speech because of heavy traffic. So we decided to leave for home. It took us one hour to cover the distance of 4 km to reach the home back. We watched Modi’s speech on TV.
It was a great experience for us, we had never seen such crowd like that before. All we can say from our experience is that India is really crazy for Modi and wants him to be PM .
