On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Varanasi for the first time since the constituency elected him, bringing with him the first of many gifts it has been promised since he decided to contest from here. He laid the foundation for a Trade and Crafts Felicitation Centre for weavers, a community that comprises mostly Muslims. After decades of neglect of its ghats, farmer and weaver communities, and civic amenities, Varanasi has of late been the focus of attention from the Centre as well as the state government. Visits by other central leaders have preceded Modi’s, all keen to fulfil his promises for Varanasi and the Ganga. Modi’s programme begins with a visit to Lalpur to lay the foundation for a Trade and Facilitation Centre for weavers. He will visit Jayapur village, which he is adopting for development, and then his constituency office in Ravindrapuri, where he will spend an hour, meeting the staff for the first time and accepting applications and complaints from 25 visitors shortlisted by office in-charge Shiv Sharan Pathak. At DLW Ground, Modi will address some 10,000 party workers.
