Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on his first visit to his parliamentary constituency after the resounding victory in Loksabha elections, today offered prayers at the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
Flanked by BJP president Amit Shah and Uttar Pradesh Chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Mr. Modi entered the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and paid obeisance to the deity as priests recited Sanskrit 'shlokas' in the sanctum sanctorum and blew conch shells.
The visit is aimed at thanking people for again reposing their faith in him and offering prayers at the famous temple. The Prime Minister is also scheduled to address a gathering of BJP workers in the city. ()
