BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi may not have come to Punjab for the election campaign yet, but with technology at its best, he made a virtual appearance on a stage in the city and addressed a rally through the state-of-the-art 3D hologram.

Residents of ward number 13 in the New Nehru colony were astonished to see Modi “coming to the stage, waving at them, sitting for a while and later giving a speech”. As this was the first 3D rally in the state, there was a tremendous enthusiasm among the people who had gathered to have a ‘virtual glimpse’ of Modi.

With a gigantic stage set up in the middle of a vacant area, a specialised sound system in place and electronic signals being used to make the 3D rally a success, the gathering welcomed Modi with applause as he “appeared” on the stage. Beginning his speech, Modi, said: “We are using technology to reach out to the people.”
