Modi offers prayers at Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday visited the famous Meenakshi Amman temple in Madurai and offered prayers.

He was given poorna kumbha honour by the temple priests. Modi was clad in the traditional ‘veshti’ (dhoti), shirt and ‘angavastram’ during his visit to the temple.

Modi is scheduled to address public meetings in Madurai and Kanyakumari today in support of NDA candidates.

BJP is facing the Tamilnadu Assembly polls in alliance with the ruling AIADMK.

BJP is also contesting the Kanyakumari Lok Sabha bypoll, necessitated due to the death of Congress MP H Vasantha Kumar, who died of COVID-19, last year.

BJP leader and former Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan is the party candidate for the bypoll.
