Narendra Modi will land in country’s financial capital to inaugurate Mumbai Diamond Merchant Association’s Diamond Hall at the Bharat Diamond Bourse in Bandra-Kurla Complex.
Just after ridiculing the Congress and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif overdisrespecting PM Manmohan Singh in Dellhi, Bhartiya Janata Party’s PM candidate Narendra Modi will land in Mumbai today.
His visit, though, will be a little let down to those who want him to see speak. He will be there in the capacity of Gujarat chief minister for inaugurating Mumbai Diamond Merchant Association’s Diamond Hall at the Bharat Diamond Bourse in Bandra-Kurla Complex.
He will land in Mumbai at 4 pm. He is also scheduled to attend a function lined up with an industry association later in the evening.
This will be his first visit to the maximum city after his anointment as BJP’s prime ministerial candidate.
Although Modi’s visit is a non-party function, there is no denying that the visit has sparked interest. BJP leaders said that Modi is likely to increase his engagement in Maharashtra keeping an eye on 2014 Lok Sabha polls and considering the state’s 48 Lok Sabha seats which are next only to Uttar Pradesh.
Looking at the fact that Modi has been slamming the government over economic crisis and other ssues, it will be interesting to see how he is welcomed in the financial capital of the country.
