PM Modi holds mega roadshow in Varanasi on eve of filing nomination

Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a mega-five-kilometer-long roadshow in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi on Monday evening.

Before starting the roadshow, PM Modi paid floral tribute to statue of Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya at Lanka Gate of Banaras Hindu University.
He was accompanied by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adiyanath and other leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Visuals from the spot showed an exuberant crowd gathered along the route and on terraces to get a glimpse of the Prime Minister.

After the roadshow, the PM will also seek blessings from Baba Vishwanath at the Kashi Vishwanath temple where the procession will conclude after gracefully traversing through the city.
Amidst a vibrant display, the roadshow highlighted the remarkable achievements of the central government spanning the past decade, resonating with promises fulfilled and milestones attained.
The hundred designated points along the five-kilometre route in the temple town, which includes Assi, Sonarpura, Jangambari, and Godaulia, were arranged to extend a warm welcome to the Prime Minister.
