PM's roadshow - 

 

The prime minister held a dazzling roadshow in Varanasi a day back and vowed to do a lot more to serve the holy city in his third term. He spent the night in the city. 

 

PM Modi posted a clip from the roadshow on 'X' and said, "The love and blessings that my family members of Kashi showered on me during the road show has become an unforgettable moment in my life." 

 

In another post in Hindi, he said, "My day started with paying respects to Maa Ganga in Kashi… I prayed to Maa Ganga for happiness, prosperity and health for Kashi residents as well as my family members across the country. 'Jai Maa Ganga'." 

 

In a post on 'X' in Hindi, Adityanath said, "The 'charioteer of Amrit Kaal' of India, respected Prime Minister Narendra PM Modi, who is striving for prosperity of 140 crore Indians, filed his nomination for the Lok Sabha election from Varanasi today. Every resident of Kashi is committed to making their beloved MP, the respected prime minister, victorious with record number of votes." 

 

Voting in Varanasi will take place in the seventh phase of the Lok Sabha election on June 1. The Congress has fielded its state unit president Ajay Rai from the seat and the BSP has nominated Athar Jamal Lari.
