Overseas BJP rallies around Indian PM in US, Australia

The 'Overseas Friends of BJP' (OFBJP) in the US organised a "Modi ka Parivar March" on Sunday at iconic places in over 16 cities, supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's re-election and the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) winning over 400 seats in the upcoming general elections in India.

OFBJP is a key organisation that seeks to promote the policies and leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) among the Indian diaspora around the world.

In the capital city of Washington, DC, men, women, and children assembled at the reflection pond of Capitol Hill wearing "Modi ka Parivar March" T-shirts, holding flags of the BJP, the US, and India.

Supporters of PM Modi convened at the Washington Monument, showcasing placards with slogans like "Ab ki baar 400 parrrr", "Modi 3.0", and "Sikh Americans for Modi". The signs also featured messages like "Modi guarantee, India's 3rd largest economy", reflecting the demonstrators' aspirations tied to Modi's leadership, the organisation said in a press release.

"In a show of unity and support, a good number of people from across the San Francisco Bay Area convened at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge for the 'Modi Ka Parivar March' on April 7 at 11:00 AM (Pacific Daylight Time)," it added.

The "Modi ka Parivar March" showcased the deep-rooted respect and solidarity for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership and the collective aspiration of "Abki Baar 400 Paar" in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Participants spanning all age groups, from young children to the elderly, gathered to express their unwavering support for Prime Minister Modi and his vision for India.

The marchers, adorned in saffron and carrying flags, banners, and placards, formed a sea of support as they made their way across the Golden Gate, symbolising the bridge of solidarity and unity that PM Modi's leadership has built among Indians worldwide.

Meanwhile, similar events also took place in Australia wherein the OFBJP Australia celebrated the 44th foundation day of the BJP on Saturday and organised car rallies in different cities of the country, including Melbourne, Canberra, Perth and Adelaide.

On this occasion, the BJP supporters announced to open 100 overseas support booths across Australia to campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

The President of Overseas Friends of BJP Australia, Jay Shah, shared about the opening of booths and said that the aim of this is to motivate the Indian diaspora in Australia to convince their friends and family to vote for BJP.

"The support for our beloved leader, Narendra Modi, is growing every day and so is our organisation. Hence, on BJP Sthapana Divas, we announce that we will open 100 overseas support booths across Australia. These will be in areas with very large population," he said.

"The aim is to do in-person campaigning amongst the known diaspora networks to motivate them to convince their friends and family to vote for the BJP," he added.

General Secretary Rahul Jethi said, "We are seeing phenomenal growth in support of PM Modi from a diverse section of diaspora. We are now working out new avenues of campaigning to channel the energy of diaspora."

The Lok Sabha elections will be held in seven phases beginning April 19, in which nearly 96.8 crore people are eligible to cast their votes.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha election, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won 303 seats, while the Indian National Congress (INC) managed to secure only 52 seats.
