Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not leaving any stone unturned to ensure maximum output in Uttar Pradesh elections as the voting will take place in his constituency on Wednesday.

After holding a rally in Jaunpur on Saturday, the Prime Minister is likely to return to his parliamentary constituency on Sunday evening to hold a rally. Sources in BJP said that PM would reach Varanasi around 1:30 PM and hold a road show via Police line, Pandeypur Chauraha , Hukulganj,Maldahia and  Kashi Vidyapeeth. Later, he would address a rally at Kashi Vidyapeeth sports ground.

He is likely to reach the rally’s venue in a procession resembling a road show before going to the guest house of Diesel Locomotive Works where he might informally interact with nearly 2,000 distinguished citizens and, thereafter, retire for the day.

On Monday, the final day of campaigning for the seventh phase, Modi is expected to visit Ramnagar area across the Ganga, where Lal Bahadur Shastri had spent his early childhood, and garland a statue of the former Prime Minister.

Then, Modi is likely to sign off with a rally in Rohaniya.

Stakes are particularly high for the BJP in the Prime Minister’s Lok Sabha constituency.

Top leaders like party chief Amit Shah and vice president in-charge of UP Om Mathur have been conducting whirlwind tours of the city while Union ministers like Arun Jaitley, Smriti Irani and Piyush Goyal have been interacting with citizens from different walks of life.
