With barely a month left for Assembly elections in five states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the “star campaigner” of the BJP, has continued his poll stunts. 

After donning a Manipuri stole and a Brahmakamal cap of Uttarakhand, PM Modi wore a Sikh turban while attending a NCC rally at Cariappa Ground in Delhi on Friday. 

Notably, Punjab has the largest population of Sikhs in India, numbering around 16 million forming 57.69% of the state population. 

And, Punjab is among the five states that will go to polls next month.

Thus, what seems to be an apparent election stunt, PM Modi wearing a Sikh turban, doesn’t come as a surprise. 

Earlier on Republic Day, PM Modi, in an apparent message to election-bound states of Uttarakhand and Manipur, wore a Brahmakamal cap, which is native to the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, and a Manipuri stole.
