After addressing the rally, the PM went to the hospital to visit the injured. One such victim, Rita Mudi, requested Modi for his autograph. What Mudi had not anticipated was she would be getting marriage proposals after Modi's visit.

Speaking to ANI, Mudi said, "I became a celebrity. Me and my sister are even getting marriage proposals."
The villagers thronged to her house just to click a selfie with her, now a celebrity.

Along with his signature, Modi also left a note for Mudi. "Rita Mudi, tum sukhi raho (Be Happy, Rita Mudi)."
According to officials, the prime minister saw the tent collapsing while he was in the middle of his speech. He immediately instructed the SPG personnel standing near him to look after the people and attend to the injured.
After a brief pause, PM Modi started his speech again and said, “People in Bengal are very courageous. Despite the crumbling down of one of the tents, people preferred to stand here amid heavy rains. I would like to salute you all. I have never witnessed such dedication before.”
