Photos: 'Modi dhamaka!': From rockets to sparklers, firecrackers named after PM Narendra Modi take over the markets
Narendra Modi is not only dominating politics but also the firecrackers market in Patna.

Modi magic has taken over the firecracker market in Patna. Modi rocket, Modi chakri, Modi bomb, Modi phuljhari (sparklers) - firecrackers named after Prime Minister Narendra Modi are selling like hot cakes in Bihar ahead of Diwali as their demand is more than the ones named after former chief ministers Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar.

"Modi's name is not only dominating politics, it has become top selling brand for firecrackers ahead of Diwali," said Ramesh Kumar, a shopkeeper at the wholesale market in old Patna.

"All items named after Modi are selling briskly. This time demand for firecrackers named after Lalu and Nitish are lagging behind," said Bhola Singh, another shopkeeper here.

Bhola Singh told IANS that crackers named after Modi are the first choice of buyers, more popular than those bearing the names of film stars and cricket players.
