Dispur/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi spent Saturday morning taking an elephant and a jeep safari at Assam's Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve, amid his packed administrative and political schedule.

Modi was reportedly accompanied by senior forest officials including park director Sonali Ghosh.

In an X post, the Prime Minister wrote, "This morning I was at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam. Nestled amidst lush greenery, this UNESCO World Heritage site is blessed with diverse flora and fauna including the majestic one horned rhinoceros."

 

He said in a follow up post, "I would urge you all to visit Kaziranga National Park and experience the unparalleled beauty of its landscapes and the warmth of the people of Assam. It's a place where every visit enriches the soul and connects you deeply with the heart of Assam."

Another post reads, "Interacted with Van Durga, the team of women forest guards who are at the forefront of conservation efforts, bravely protecting our forests and wildlife. Their dedication and courage in safeguarding our natural heritage is truly inspiring."

"Feeding sugar cane to Lakhimai, Pradyumna and Phoolmai. Kaziranga is known for the rhinos but there are also large number of elephants there, along with several other species," the Prime Minister added.

Modi, who has kicked off the campaign for his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), is scheduled to inaugurate several central and state projects in Assam, which is ruled by the saffron camp.

The Prime Minister will also address a public rally.
