Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a late night tour on Saturday, inspected the ongoing development projects in his Lok Sabha constituency of Varanasi, officials said.
After inaugurating a slew of projects in the city earlier in the day, Modi offered prayers at the Kashi Vishwanath temple near the Benaras Hindu University (BHU).
Accompanied by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the prime minister then headed to Ravindrapuri, Sonarpura Gowdowlia and Gyanvapi before reaching Varanasi Townhall.
Modi savoured the mesmerizing sight of the old building of the townhall, bathed in sparkling lights of different hues. He then left for Lohatia and Kabir Chaura.
At the Piplani Katra intersection, Modi stopped by the sculpture of Saint Kabir before moving on to the musicians’ colony to inspect the ‘heritage walk’ there.
After visiting Lahurabir, Teliyabag and the Doordarshan tower in Nadesar, Modi reached his rest house.
