Amid hectic election campaign home and diplomatic commitments abroad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will clock hundreds of hours travelling in the next few days, official sources said Wednesday.
After visiting Singapore and Maldives during the Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh campaign, the Prime Minister Wednesday left for Argentina to attend the G20 summit, in the midst of campaigning for the Rajasthan and Telangana elections, they pointed out.
From November 23, Modi has been on the campaign trail every day.
Wednesday saw him address two election rallies in Rajasthan, in the course of a seven-hour journey, involving both plane and chopper.
"Barely ninety minutes after landing in Delhi, the Prime Minister emplaned for Argentina," a functionary said.
The total travel time to Buenos Aires is 25 hours, and consequently, the to and fro trips will involve a combined journey time of nearly 50 hours.
In between these two trips, the Prime Minister will be in Buenos Aires for just over 50 hours. This time period includes two nights.
In the space of 50 hours, the Prime Minister has over 25 scheduled engagements. These include the various sessions of the G20 summit, sideline meetings including the BRICS informal meeting, and bilateral meetings with various world leaders.
On December 3, he will campaign in Jodhpur and Hyderabad.
