Mumbai: Looking forward to the Lok Sabha election, PM Narendra Modi tweeted that in an emotional video, he was declared him as a ‘Kashi-resident’ and sought his blessing to pave the way for the Lok Sabha elections for the second term from the seat.
PM Narendra Modi said that his relationship with the holy city is very strong because he had come here many times in the last five years and it is believed that if a person comes here once, then he should be an integral part of the city.
Modi said that it was a matter of great satisfaction for him that he was in the service of the city, whose patron deity Lord Vishwanatha was.
In his appeal, the Prime Minister mentioned the development that changed Varanasi and its neighbourhood and cited the construction of highways, railway stations and multi-model terminals on the Ganges river.
However, Modi said that there is still a lot to be done, one task, which he said, will meet with the people so that the pace of development does not stop.
