Arvind Kejriwal holds roadshow in Varanasi, says Narendra Modi will lose
Zee Media Bureau
Varanasi: With three days left for the big battle in Varanasi, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Friday began his roadshow from rural parts of the constituency to woo the electorate of the ancient Hindu holy city.
Confident of a big win, Kejriwal said that Narendra Modi will lose despite the fact that the BJP is doing everything it can, including playing communal as well as caste politics, violence and bribing media.
He also said that people in Varanasi are wondering how will a person, who comes on a helicopter for just two hours to campaign, serve them.
“AAP is winning with a huge majority in Varanasi...Narendra Modi will suffer defeat as people of Varanasi know about the reality,” said Kejriwal, whose roadshow would be from Banaras Hindu University gate —— the same place from where Modi began his drive-through on Thursday.
Hitting out at Kejriwal, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that people of Varanasi have made their minds, and no road show, air show, or water show will help him.
Kejriwal`s roadshow comes a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party`s prime ministerial candidate`s dramatic visit to the city on Thursday.
The chief of the Aam Aadmi Party will travel from Singh Dwaar to Lahurabeer Chowk during his roadshow.
Kejriwal has been extensively campaigning in Varanasi for over 20 days, addressing corner meetings and reaching out to people.
Party leaders Yogendra Yadav, Somnath Bharti, Manish Sisodia, Rakhi Birla, Anand Kumar, Sanjay Singh are among those contributing to the poll effort.
The party is laying thrust on "door-to-door campaign".
Party leaders are also addressing people associated with a trade to seek their support.
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will visit Varanasi tomorrow to give a push to the prospects of his party`s candidate, Ajay Rai, in the prestigious May 12 election which is being watched with keen interest in the country and abroad.
Samajwadi Party candidate Kailash Chaurasia and Bahujan Samaj Party candidate Vijay Prakash Jaiswal are among those who have made the contest keener.
Campaigning in Varanasi will end on May 10.
