New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal questioned BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's motive behind campaigning in Varanasi for five days and implied that it might be due to the fact that he was nervous.

Kejriwal posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter - “Media says Modi ji to campaign in Varanasi for 5 days from 5 May. He didn't campaign in Vadodara. Then why so many days in Kashi? Nervous?”



Modi is contesting from both Varanasi and Vadodara. While polls in Vadodara got over yesterday, the holy city is due to vote on May 12.

Kejriwal is Modi's opponent in Varanasi along with Congress' Ajay Rai.

Modi is reportedly due to campaign in Varanasi from May 5. As per reports, the Gujarat Police and National Security Guard (NSG) have decided to rent a house for him in the Cantonment area of the city.

Other BJP leaders like LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh and others may also campaign in the holy city.

The counting for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls is due on May 16.
