70,000 Gujaratis hopes for Modi’s victory in Varanasi
Varanasi : In Varanasi, BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate and Gujarat’s Chief Minister, Narendra Modi faces a tough competition from AAP Chief Aravind Kejriwal. Despite that about 70,000 Gujaratis are doing their best efforts to make Modi win in the temple town.
It may come as a surprise for many to see such a large number of Gujarati community in the narrow lanes of Varanasi, but for Varanasi residents have been seeing this for generations. Varanasi has been home for over 70,000 Gujaratis much before Modi decided to contest in the town.
“We have lived in Varanasi for about 300 years. But we are Gujaratis. Narendra Modi’s father, Damodardas Modi used to run a tea stall here many years ago.” Gujarati Community in Varanasi is proud that Modi has chosen their city as his foundation to the Prime Minister’s office.
