Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday will interact with over 1 crore Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers and volunteers from 15,000 locations across the country.
The BJP has claimed the interaction to be the “world’s biggest video conference”. The programme has been given the name as “Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot.”
BJP president Amit Shah said on Sunday that “On Feb 28, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with over 1 crore BJP karyakartas, volunteers and well-wishers, spread across 15,000 locations, in what would be world’s largest video conference.”
People across the country can send their questions to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the NaMo app. In Gujarat alone, PM Modi will be addressing the BJP workers through video-conferencing across 450 centres under its “Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot” programme.
With the interaction, PM Modi is aiming at mobilising support from the general public and galvanising the party workers into action for the upcoming Lok Sabha election.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed the prime minister for engaging in political activities when an IAF personnel is missing in action with Pakistan jets.
Kejriwal wrote in a tweet that: “I would urge the PM to postpone this [Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot programme]. At this moment, we as a nation, need to spend all our energies and time to get the IAF pilot back safely and to sternly deal with Pakistan.”

Later in the day, Pakistan also claimed to have captured an Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot who had flown his aircraft into the Pakistani airspace, after India breached India.
