New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will leave for Kanyakumari today after the end of campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections. He will meditate for two days at the iconic Vivekananda Rock Memorial. This is the same place where Swami Vivekananda used to meditate. Ahead of PM Modi's Kanyakumari visit, his 33-year-old photos from this iconic place surfaced on social media on Thursday and became a topic of discussion among the people.

When were the viral photos taken?
According to the information, these pictures viral on social media are of the Ekta Yatra organized on 11 December 1991 which started from the iconic Vivekananda Rock Memorial in Kanyakumari and ended in Kashmir. In the viral pictures, all the 'Ekta Yatra' including Narendra Modi and senior party leader Dr. Murli Manohar Joshi can be seen paying homage to the statue of Swami Vivekananda.

Ekta Yatra was very special
Let us tell you that the Ekta Yatra, also known as Ekta March, started from Kanyakumari in December 1991 and ended with the hoisting of the national flag tricolor in Srinagar on 26 January 1992. The Ekta Yatra was led by senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi, while the then BJP worker Narendra Modi played a major role in organizing this yatra. The goal of this yatra was to send a message to the world that India will stand firmly against terrorist forces and remain united. Spread across 14 states, this yatra touched the hearts of the people and reflected the country's unwavering commitment to national unity.

Modi will meditate for 48 hours in Kanyakumari
PM Modi will meditate for 48 hours at Dhyan Mandapam in Kanyakumari from May 30 to June 1. This is the same place where Swami Vivekananda meditated in 1892. The rock memorial was built to pay tribute to Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda is said to have meditated here for three days after traveling across the country and dreamed of a developed India.

Prime Minister Modi had undertaken a similar spiritual journey after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In 2019, he visited Uttarakhand and meditated in a cave near the Kedarnath temple.
