Varanasi, May 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed the workers of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Varanasi.
“I had spoken to workers of Varanasi. All of you had ordered me that I can’t set foot in Varanasi for a month” the Prime Minister told the gathering.
“The nation might elected me as the PM but four you, I am a worker. For me, your order was the priority”, he added.
PM Modi praised the party workers for their hardwork and dedication in the recently concluded Lok Sabha Elections.
He said that after the campaign, I used to think of coming here but I used to recall your orders. Maine socha ye nahi to koi aur baba. Rarely is a candidate so relaxed, as I was, during elections and the results.
“Your hardwork was the reason for it. I was relaxed so I went to Kedarnath”, PM asserted.
“The supporters in Kashi didn’t weigh the elections on the scales of win-loss. They considered this a festival of ‘Lok shiksha’, ‘Lok sampark’, ‘Lok sangrah’, ‘Lok samarpan’, “.
The Prime Minister further stated “If even after 3 elections, political pundits don’t realize what UP’s results show about India, their ideology is for the 20th century”.
“Between someone who has several degrees and a person who works at grassroot level, the latter has more wisdom”.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi offered prayers at the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
With full of energy and excitement, the holy city welcomed the Prime Minister.
