"Why was the Rahul roadshow permitted when Modi was denied permission (to hold a rally in) the same area?" Jaitley said, referring to Beniya Bagh. He attributed it to "political motive".
Jaitley added: "This will be a major blot on elections in India. The prime ministerial candidate was not allowed to campaign in his own constituency."
Modi wasn`t given permission by the Returning Officer to hold a rally in Rohania, a rural Assembly constituency outside the main Varanasi city but within the Lok Sabha constituency.

Rahul`s rodashow is being viewed as response to Modi`s rally in Amethi on May 05.
The Gandhi scion today landed at Varanasi`s Babatpur airport and began his roadshow from the Gol Gadda Chauraha, which is a Mulsim dominated area. The roadshow will continue till Lanka.
Rahul`s roadshow follows a massive one conducted by Kejriwal yesterday and another one by Modi the day before.
The roadshow is to conclude after about ten kms at Lanka near BHU gate, the same place where Kejriwal and Modi had begun their roadshows.
Today is the last day day of campaigning ahead of final phase of the Lok Sabha polls.
Modi, by holding a rally in Amethi, had broken the unwritten code between the political bigwigs who avoid campaigning in the constituency of their top rival.
Moreover, as per his official programme, he will also address a public meeting later at Sathwan in Chiraigaon block in the holy city.
Besides Gandhi, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh`s son Akhilesh Yadav will also be holding a roadshow in Varanasi.
