Palakkad, Mar 19 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a road show on Tuesday morning riding on a decorated open-roof vehicle as part of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Lok Sabha election campaign in Kerala to support C Krishnakumar, the NDA candidate in Palakkad Lok Sabha Constituency, for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Narendra Modi landed at Mercy College ground in a helicopter from Coimbatore at 1025 hrs, and BJP leaders led by Kerala Prabhari Prakash Javedkar, State President K Surendran, and Palakkad Municipal Chairman E Krishnakumar gave a rousing welcome to him at Mercy College ground.

After this function, Narendra Modi reached Kottamaidhan-Anchuvilakku by road with a convoy of SPG and police security.

The roadshow commenced from Kottamaidhan-Anchuvilkku at 1045 hrs by carrying the NDA candidates C KrishnaKumar (Palakkad), Nivedhitha Subramanyan (Malappuram candidate), and State President K Surendran in an open vehicle.

The PM waved hands towards the people, who thronged on both sides of the road, and the road show concluded at 1115 hrs near the Head Post office in the town.
