This time Modi will be interacting with farmers across India over various issues including agrarian crises.

The second edition of 'Chai Pe Charcha' was held on March 8 on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

On Wednesday, the Election Commission of India asked the BJP to take prior permission for organizing its ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ programme and ensure that the Model Code of Conduct is not violated at any cost.

The Gujarat Chief Minister launched this programme last month when he interacted with public at tea stalls and answered queries on good governance. The programme was simultaneously held at 100 locations across 300 cities across the country.

The programme has been coined by BJP using the 'tea- seller' barb hurled at Modi by rivals to reach out to voters across the country and engage with him.
