Lok Sabha Election 2019 Phase 4 Live Updates: PM Modi to hold a mega roadshow in Varanasi today
Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to begin a two-day trip to his Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi today, which will culminate with the PM filing his election papers from the seat this Friday. PM Modi will visit Varanasi this afternoon and lead a roadshow starting from the Banaras Hindu University, passing through ancient temples and ghats before finally ending in the holiest ghats of them all - Dashashwamedh.
The roadshow is touted to be a mega event as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is pulling all the stops to ensure its win in the Lok Sabha Election 2019. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who was speculated to hold a roadshow in Mumbai today, will not campaign there now. He will instead hold a rally in Sangamner in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra where he will canvass for Congress candidate Bhausaheb Kamble from Shirdi constituency.
The Congress leader is in Uttar Pradesh. She will lead a roadshow in Jhansi for party candidate Shiv Saran Kushwaha and follow it up with meetings in Ghursarai, Orai and Jalaun, where the party has fielded Dalit leader Brij Lal Khabri.
Meanwhile, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will release the Aam Aadmi Party's manifesto today, which is based on the agenda of granting full statehood to the national capital.
