The rally, which commenced from various starting points, converged at the Bounty Cricket Ground in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Following the rally, a special puja of Lord Ram was held at Carnival Hall, Basingstoke, with more than 200 devotees praying for the success of PM Modi's goal of winning over 400 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha election, the organisers said in a release.
