Modi cancels visit to ‘sunny’ Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh due to ‘bad weather,’ faces ridicule from critics


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday cancelled his scheduled trip to Bijnor to address an election rally due to ‘bad weather’ but his critics were quick to mock the claim saying how the weather in the Uttar Pradesh town was perfectly fine.

Modi was scheduled to address an election rally in Bijnor on Monday but this was later changed to a virtual event owing to ‘bad weather. Speaking at the virtual rally, Modi said, “First of all, I’d like to apologise to you. After some relaxation by the EC, I had thought of beginning my campaign by coming to Bijnor (UP) in person. But due to weather conditions, my helicopter couldn’t leave and I could see you only through video conferencing once again.”

However, his claims did not go down well with his critics with many sharing the screenshot of the latest weather condition in Bijnor, which looked sunny with the current temperature being shown to be 18 degrees. RLD chief Jayant Chaudhary tweeted, “The sun is shining in Bijnor but the BJP’s weather looks poor.”

Similar reactions followed from other Twitter users.

Modi had to face considerable criticism after he was forced to cancel his election rally in Ferozepur in Punjab. After being forced to return to Delhi from Bhatinda in Punjab, Modi had blamed the state’s Congress government for compromising his security. The Congress had blamed the poor turnout by people for Modi’s decision to cancel the Ferozepur visit.

Uttar Pradesh goes to the polls in seven stages with the counting of votes scheduled for 10 March.
