Many people also showered flower petals as PM Modi’s convoy passed through the roadshow.

Meanwhile, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma welcomed PM Modi at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport.

“Swagatam Adarniya Narendra Modi Ji. Extended a warm welcome to Prime Minister Narendra Modi at LGBI (Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International) Airport, as he arrived on his 27th visit to Assam,” the Assam CM posted on X.

The Lok Sabha polls for 14 seats in Assam will be held in three phases starting on April 19.

In this Lok Sabha election in Assam, the BJP is contesting in 11 out of 14 seats, while its ally parties, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), are contesting in two seats (Barpeta and Dhubri) and UPPL in one seat (Kokrajhar), respectively.
