Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday held his road show for the second consecutive day in his Parliamentary constituency Varanasi to ensure that the BJP emerges victorious in the Assembly polls.
The Prime Minister first flew to the Police Lines in a special Indian Air Force chopper from the airport and made way in his bullet-proof car in a convoy to the Pandeypur area, from where his second leg of road show was to commence. The five-km road show would be from Police Lines to Kashi Vidyapeeth. A number of local BJP leaders greeted Modi at the helipad and presented him bouquets. Thousands of people were lined up along the routes of Modi's road show and the enthusiastic crowds occasionally broke into 'Modi, Modi' chants. Varanasi is also the Prime Minister’s Parliamentary constituency.
Meanwhile, dubbing Prime Minister Narendra Modi today as a 'thug' (con man), Samajwadi Party patron Mulayam Singh Yadav today accused him of lying to the people to form his government. "He (PM) is a thug (con man), who lied to the people to form his government. You should beware of him now," said Yadav addressing a rally here for party candidate Paras Nath Yadav, contesting from the Malhani assembly seat. Yadav said there was no difference between what his party said and what it did. "We fulfil what we say. Whenever there is any instance of atrocity against people, the SP has been with them and will always be there," he said adding that after forming the government, his party would fulfil all the promises made in its manifesto." At Sonabhadra, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav today sought to ridicule the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's roadshows saying these are bound to fail like the earlier ones and would lead him "somewhere else."
"Ek roadshow kiya, wo fail ho gaya.. Ek aur karne ja rahe hain, wo bhi fail hoga, phir ek aur karenge... Ab roadshow karte karte kahin aur nikal jayenge.. (A roadshow was failed. He is doing one will also fail and then again a roadshow will be held...Now he will go somewhere else by doing his roadshow)," said Akhilehsh while addressing a poll rally here. The BJP has said the one held yesterday was not a roadshow and the PM had gone for a "darshan" in Kashi Vishwanath and other temples.
