"The wind is in favour of BJP, thread (that holds the kite) gets strength from workers as we have world's biggest organisation with 11 crore party members.
"The kite flying at the highest point is that of BJP and the party under Modi's leadership will realise the slogan of 'Abki Baar Phir Se Modi Sarkar' (once again Modi government) by winning the Lok Sabha polls," Rupani said.
Leaders from different political parties, MLAs and MPs also celebrated the popular festival by flying kites with their family members.
People assembled in large numbers on the rooftops to fly kites and celebrate the festival with their family members.
