New Delhi: PM halts his Address for Azaan. On Saturday evening, he likely to start his address for Tripura victory.
In a first reaction, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday thanked the people of Meghalaya, Tripura, and Nagaland for supporting “good governance” and “act east policy” of his government.
PM Modi stayed silent for around two minutes as the sounds of Azaan rang out in the middle of his speech on the party’s spectacular performance in Tripura. BJP president Amit Shah had just finished speaking before the Prime Minister.
When the prayers stopped, the Prime Minister resumed his speech after shouting “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”, which was echoed by scores of BJP workers gathered at the office.
This is not the first time PM Modi has stopped his speech for Azaan. In November, he paused his speech while campaigning in Gujarat.
The year before, he had stopped while speaking at a rally in West Bengal. “I do not want to interrupt anyone’s prayers. So I decided to take a brief rest,” he said as he resumed his address.
