The Asian Age - - Nation - AMITA VERMA

A 110 feet tall and 35 feet wide cut-out of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi, 1500 kilo­grams of ‘lad­doo’ and a spe­cial ‘ha­van’ for health and longevity will mark Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s 67th birthday in Lucknow on Sun­day.

Nripendra Pandey, BJP ac­tivist, a lawyer and a hard­core Modi ‘bhakt’ is spar­ing no ef­forts to make the oc­ca­sion garnd.

Mr Pandey had ear­lier walked 1200 kilo­me­ters from Lucknow to Ah­mad­abad to meet Mr Modi’s mother and seek her bless­ings.

“A spe­cial rit­ual has been ar­ranged at the tem­ple in the dis­trict col­lec­torate. The tem­ple author­i­ties will ring the 105 kg ‘Damodar Ghanta’ (tem­ple bell) at 13 hours fol­lowed by ‘anushthaan’ after which 67 kilo­grams of ‘boondi lad­doo’ and 1500 kilo­grams of ‘be­san lad­doo’ will be dis­trib­uted among the peo­ple”, he told re­porters on Satur­day.

The cutout is be­ing shaped by Zul­fiqur Hus­sain, also known as Raju Artist, and is as­sisted by ar­ti­sans es­pe­cially hired from Dubai. The cutout would be in­stalled in front of UP Vid­han Sabha, near the gate of UP BJP head­quar­ters.

Mr Nripendra Pandey said, “Ev­ery­one should get in­spired with our Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi and his way of tak­ing the coun­try on a pro­gres­sive path. My mo­tive to cel­e­brate his birthday in the most unique way is to spread the PM’s mes­sage all across the state”.
