The injured were rushed to the hospital and after his address, the PM paid a visit to the victims.

According to reports, the scaffolding crashed due to heavy rains in the area, leading to a stampede-like situation. The tent was erected next to the main entrance of the venue to shelter people from the rain. The tent collapsed during the PM’s speech and Modi immediately instructed the Special Protection Group (SPG) personnel standing near him to rescue the people and attend to the injured, officials said.
