Is he the most ardent fan of PM Narendra Modi?

Jaipur: There may be crores of fans of Narendra Modi, but here's one from Rajasthan, who compelled the Prime Minister to fulfil his wish.

The Prime Minister today met Balwant Kumawat, a youth from Bhilwara, Rajasthan, who had taken a pledge not to wear footwear until he meets the top Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader. He was barefoot continuously since then.

Kumawat had also expressed a keen desire that Modi become the Prime Minister.

After his meeting with PM Modi, Kumawat resumed wearing footwear.

The PM advised him to now devote his energies to a positive cause for nation-building. He also urged Kumawat not to take a pledge which would cause physical discomfort.
