On a Monday morning at Harimandir Ji Patna Sahib Gurdwara, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen humbly serving food to devotees. PM Modi took part in the langar service while wearing a traditional Sikh turban. The langar service serves complimentary meals to all visitors irrespective of social or beliefs, and functions as a community kitchen. The Prime Minister's participation proved his commitment to public service and respect for the Sikh community. Amidst heightened security measures, the images capturing Modi's service quickly captured people's attention and spread like wildfire across social media platforms.

The event happened at Takhat Sri Patna Sahib, a historical and spiritual site in Patna, Bihar's capital. This gurdwara holds great significance in Sikh history as it is the birthplace of the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The foundation of Takhat Sri Patna Sahib dates back to the 18th century. History states that it was established when Maharaja Ranjit Singh decided to pay tribute to Guru Gobind Singh and his time spent in Patna before relocating to Anandpur Sahib.

PM Modi helped the gurdwara management prepare meals during his visit. Serving Sikh devotees from a steel bucket symbolised his service-oriented leadership. Recipients of the food expressed their gratitude visibly, acknowledging the Prime Minister's gesture of humility and dedication.

This event was part of Modi's larger itinerary in Bihar, where he also held a roadshow—the first ever by a sitting prime minister in the state—followed by scheduled addresses at election rallies across various constituencies. His presence in Bihar was strategic, coinciding with the ongoing fourth phase of the Lok Sabha elections. Modi used this opportunity to encourage a high voter turnout, emphasizing the importance of each vote in strengthening Indian democracy and supporting developmental agendas.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah also called for a high voter turnout in several states. He stated that a developed India and the end of Naxalism would depend on a lot of people voting. It was clear from their appeals how important Bihar and the states around it are to the country's politics.
