Modi's Nashik rally washed out by rainstorm
Sunday October 5, 2014 9:03 PM, IANS

Heavy rains accompanied by thunder and lightning washed out Prime Minister Narendra Modi's scheduled election rally Sunday in this Maharashtra pilgrimage centre.

Modi was expected to reach here late Sunday evening, but the sudden stormy weather created a lot of mud and waterlogging on approach roads to the open ground, the venue of the rally near the city.

Many chairs were tossed about by the gusty winds and some portions of the marquee and stage also were blown away, necessitating cancellation of the rally, a local organizer told media persons.

Now, the state Bharatiya Janata Party unit is planning to squeeze in Nashik on Modi's poll itinerary in the next two days.

On Sunday, Modi addressed huge rallies in Sangli, Kolhapur, and Gondiya in eastern Maharashtra ahead of the Oct 15 state assembly elections.

This was Modi's second day of whistle-stop election tours in the state where he is expected to address 20 rallies over the next nine days.
