Bhubaneswar, April 6:
After holding several rallies across the state, BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is all set to address virtual public meetings using ‘3D Holographic Projection’ technique in nine Lok Sabha constituencies in Odisha on Monday.
Modi will address the voters in nine out of the 10 Lok Sabha constituencies, which are going to polls in the first phase on April 10.
These nine constituencies are Bargarh, Sundargarh, Sambalpur, Bolangir, Kalahandi, Nabarangpur, Kandhamal, Berhampur and Koraput, sources in the BJP said.
There will be more than 1,000 such shows across the country where Modi is set to communicate directly with the people through 3D projections of himself, in addition to proposed 185 ‘Bharat Vijay’ rallies.
Modi will address thousands of people at more than 100 places simultaneously between 6.30 PM to 8 PM through the technology. He will address 10 to 12 rallies using the technology which will be telecast live in over 1,000 places, said party sources.
A studio has already been created in the State capital Gandhinagar. Modi would deliver his speeches for virtual rallies from the studio which will be connected with multiple locations through satellite.
“The rallies would be organised in such a way that people would feel that Modi himself is at the venue and delivering speech to them. Even content for the speech would be tailor-made to the targeted constituency or region,” said BJP spokesperson Sajjan Sharma adding that such rallies would be organized at 30 more places in the coming days.
It is to be noted that during the election campaign of Gujarat Assembly in December 2012, the Gujarat Chief Minister did nearly 180 such virtual public meetings. The virtual rallies of Modi generated a lot of interest among the people.
Later, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh also utilised this technique to reach out to more people.
