Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday offered prayers at Guruvayur temple in Kerala. His visit came after winning Lok Sabha elections with a landslide victory. PM Modi also performed the ‘thulabharam’ ceremony in which he offered lotuses for his prayers, which is the BJP symbol. PM Modi was weighed on scales with lotuses and the flowers were later offered for prayers at the Sri Krishna temple.
PM Modi wore traditional attire and was accompanied by union ministers. After finishing the programs, PM will head to Andhra Pradesh to offer prayers at Lord Venkateswara in Tirumala.
Despite a massive Modi wave across the country in the Lok Sabha elections, BJP has failed to make a dent in both Kerala and Andhra Pradesh when Congress and YSR Congress Party dominated the scenes.
After the prayers at Kerala and Andhra Pradesh, PM Modi will be headed to Maldives in his first foreign trip in the second term at the Centre.
