New Delhi: BJP national president Amit Shah offered prayers at the Somnath Temple along with his family on Saturday, a day after he and Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a press conference in the national capital.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi too reached Uttarakhand to offer prayers at Kedarnath and Badrinath shrines over the weekend. While PM Modi visited Kedarnath today, he is scheduled to reach Badrinath on Sunday. PM Modi is slated to return to Delhi on Sunday itself.

Apart from paying obeisance, the Prime Minister is expected to also review the reconstruction works in the area. Security has been tightened around both the shrines in view of the Prime Minister’s visit, said Ashok Kumar, Director General (Law and Order).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday expressed confidence that the BJP will again get a full majority on its own in the Lok Sabha elections, and it will be the “first instance of a party getting an absolute majority after a full term”.

“My overall thinking is that a full majority government will be formed again after winning the Lok Sabha elections. It is going to happen for the first time. This is the big thing in itself,” Modi told the media at the BJP headquarters.

This is also the first time that the elections were fought on the basis of a pre-decided plan, he said in his first press conference during his five-year tenure.
