PM Modi Reaches Kanniyakumari, To Meditate At Vivekananda Rock Till June 1

Kanyakumari: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday arrived at the iconic Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of mainland India. His visit marks the beginning of an intense 45-hour meditation session, which will conclude on the evening of June 1.

The Prime Minister’s spiritual retreat comes as a customary practice after the completion of campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections.

PM Modi’s visit began with prayers at the Bhagavathi Amman temple, where he donned traditional attire—a dhoti and white shawl—and participated in rituals around the sanctum sanctorum. Special ‘aarti’ was performed, and he received temple ‘prasad,’ including a shawl and a framed photo of the temple deity.

Known for his spiritual sojourns post-election campaigns, PM Modi previously visited Kedarnath in 2019 and Shivaji’s Pratapgarh in 2014.

The Lok Sabha elections, occurring in seven phases starting April 19, will conclude with results announced on June 4. The BJP aims to surpass its 2019 performance and retain power.

Meanwhile, security has been heightened for PM Modi’s visit, with 2,000 police officers deployed and vigilant monitoring by the Indian Coast Guard and Indian Navy.
