Amid the on-going 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an election rally in Indore on Sunday. Giving a glimpse of his public meeting in the city, PM Modi took to Instagram and shared a video of a 'spetacular sight' from his rally.
The video is an image we all know: thousands of people holding lighters in the air, in support of their leader.

Moreover, Praising Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan for her "dedication" towards work, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, May 12 said that she was the only BJP leader who could admonish him.
Addressing the rally in Indore, Modi said:
"As the Lok Sabha speaker, 'Tai' (as Mahajan is popularly known in the constituency) has carried out her duties in a skilful and controlled way. It is because of this, she has left an indelible impression on the minds of people."
"All of you know me as prime minister. But perhaps very few people know that in our party (BJP), if there is anybody who can admonish me, it is Tai," Modi said in the presence of Mahajan, who was seated on the dais.
"Tai and I have worked in the BJP together. The kind of dedication she has towards work, I assure the people of Indore that in terms of development of the city, none of Tai's wishes will be left unfulfilled," the prime minister said.
Mahajan, an eight-time MP, had last month opted out of contesting the general elections saying she had freed the party to make its choice.
