Initiatives taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi were the dominant theme of tableaux taken out during the annual rath yatra in Ahmedabad Wednesday.

There was also a tableau on the Prime Minister’s social message — “beti bachao, beti padhao”.

Greeting people, Modi tweeted: “May the blessings of Lord Jagannath lead to development of villages, well-being of poor & farmers and take India to new heights of progress.”

Among the tableaux, one higlighted his diplomatic initiatives with photographs of Modi shaking hands with heads of Asian and Western nations along with their national flags. There were photographs of him meeting Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, US President Barack Obama and leaders of Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Japan.
