NEW DELHI: Aiming to boost the party's political fortunes in West Bengal in the ongoing parliamentary polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold four back-to-back rallies and roadshows in West Bengal on Sunday. Before that, on Saturday, when the canvassing for the fourth phase of the Lok Sabha polls comes to a close, Mr Modi will address three election rallies in neighbouring Odisha.

According to sources, in West Bengal, the Prime Minister will address rallies in Barrackpore in the North 24 Parganas, Panchla in Howrah, Chinsurah and Pursura in Hooghly on Sunday.

During his last visit to West Bengal on May 3, the Prime Minister held public meetings in Bardhaman, Krishnanagar and Bolpur. He also held an impromptu roadshow in Krishnanagar. Sources said that Mr Modi is also likely to hold a roadshow during his Sunday visit to the Opposition-ruled state.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP had won 18 seats in West Bengal, including the Hooghly and Barrackpore seats.
In Odisha, the Prime Minister will address public rallies in Kandhamal, Bolangir and Bargarh on Saturday. Sources said that the Prime Minister will also hold a roadshow in Bhubaneswar on Friday evening and he will stay the night at the Raj Bhavan. The roadshow will start from the Odisha BJP's headquarters near Sri Ram Mandir and end at Vani Vihar Square in the state capital.

Mr Modi had last visited Odisha on May 6, when he addressed two public meetings in Berhampur and Nabarangpur. Simultaneous Lok Sabha and Assembly elections will be held in Odisha in four phases, starting May 13.
