    Now, Modi has announced that he will be setting up selfie stations all across New Delhi for his fans and followers to come take selfies with him. 2,500 selfie booths have been planned by the BJP (of which 1,500 have been built) right before the Delhi assembly elections.

    At the booths already set up, people are flocking to get their very own selfie with the PM of India.

    Every booth is set up with a smartphone that is mounted on a tripod. And you can even see how your selfie came out, on a TV in the booth.

    As the BJP have done in the past, they tried to encourage the younger, more technology driven youth to vote in the upcoming Delhi elections with the #SelfieWithModi campaign which was launched on Jan. 24.

    The BJP has stated that they have already collected more than 70,000 pictures of people from all across Delhi that have taken selfies with Modi.
