Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a visit to Varanasi, his parliamentary constituency which led him to a massive win. This is his first visit to the constituency after his win.
Modi visited the famous Kashi Vishwanath temple and will later address BJP workers to celebrate his massive victory. BJP President Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath are with the PM in his visit.
To live-stream visuals of him offering prayers inside the temple, an LED screen was installed at the entrance of the temple.
Speaking to the news agency ANI, a priest of the temple said, “This is our fortune that Prime Minister will perform puja with all rituals like he did in 2014 Lok Sabha and state elections. He is the biggest devotee of Vishwanath baba. Even before the rituals start, he devotes himself to god, you can see tears of devotion in his eye”.
