NRI rally in AHmedabad

A group of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) embarked on a car rally today from Ahmedabad to Surat to campaign for the BJP while traversing nine Lok Sabha constituencies.

These NRIs are mostly Gujaratis who are here to join election fervour campaigning and lend support to Narendra Modi.

Organised by the BJP’s foreign affairs department, the rally made its way through the key towns of Nadiad, Anand, Vadodara, and Bharuch, aiming to culminate in Surat where they will be received and felicitated by Gujarat BJP president CR Patil.

Digant Sompura, the convener of the BJP’s foreign affairs department, highlighted the dedication of the participants who, “despite lacking the right to vote or stand for election, are fervently campaigning at their own expense”.

“We have gathered here from various parts of the globe, including the UK, Africa, New Zealand, and the US, to advocate for nation-building and raise political awareness,” he said.

“The rally, covering nearly 270 km and traversing nine Lok Sabha constituencies, is more than just a political gesture. It is a mobilisation of over 300 NRIs and Non-Resident Gujaratis (NRGs), who are meeting locals and spreading the word about their support for the BJP. This is our way of supporting the BJP during this crucial voting period,” Sompura added.
