Mumbai is going to play a huge role in our dream of Viksit Bharat by 2047, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday evening while addressing a massive election rally at Shivaji Park.


The rally was attended by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray, Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde, Ajit Pawar, Devendra Fadnavis and others.


PM Modi said, "That day is not far off when Mumbai will get India's first bullet train."


He said, "Our govt giving big importance to education in one's mother tongue."

PM Modi said that the Lok Sabha elections 2024 results this time will break all old records.

Earlier, PM Modi paid floral tributes to Dr B R Ambedkar at 'Chaityabhoomi' and Hindutva ideologue V D Savarkar at his memorial in Mumbai before heading to Shivaji Park to address an election rally for ruling 'Mahayuti' alliance.

Chaityabhoomi in Dadar, where Ambedkar was cremated, and Savarkar's memorial are located in close vicinity of the sprawling Shivaji Park Ground, where PM Modi shared a stage with Raj Thackeray, a BJP ally.

Union minister Ramdas Athawale was also present at the rally.

The campaign rally is being held to seek votes for all the 6 Shiv Sena-BJP candidates in Mumbai which goes to polls on May 20 in the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha elections 2024. 

PM Modi had earlier on May 15 held a massive roadshow in Ghatkopar area of Mumbai.

The BJP's star campaigner started his roadshow amid tight police vigil from Ashok Silk Mills in Ghatkopar (West) in North East Mumbai and it will pass through various locations before concluding at Prashavnath Chowk in Ghatkopar (East).

Thousands of people lined up on both sides of the barricaded stretch in suburban Ghatkopar, waiving to Modi, holding the BJP poll symbol and raising slogans hailing him.

Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister addressed two campaign rallies in the state -- in Kalyan in Thane district and Dindori in Nashik district -- in support of 'Mahayuti' Lok Sabha candidates.

Thirteen Lok Sabha seats, including half a dozen in Mumbai, will vote on May 20 in the fifth and last phase of polling in Maharashtra.
