Varanasi, May 15 (UNI): Days before the crucial polling for parliamentary constituency of Varanasi - from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking re-election - Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday staged a roadshow here.

The Congress party has fielded Ajay Rai, a senior leader, from the prestigious constituency.

The atmosphere was truly electrified with enthusiastic Congress workers raising slogans against the Prime Minister and the BJP slamming the alleged ‘divisive’ politics.

Amid drum beats, there was frequent sloganeering ‘Modi Hatao, Desh Bachao’.

One enthusiastic Congress worker Salim Khan, 24 said: “People of Varanasi know the historic importance of this year’s polls and so everyone would vote against a Prime Minister who promised a lot but could not deliver."

Waving hands and responding to the enthusiastic party workers, Priyanka Gandhi was accompanied by party candidate Ajay Rai and Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel.

Political observers however say the constituency still remains dominated by the aura of Modi.

In 2014, Congress had fielded the same Ajay Rai against Modi and he could only 75,614 votes.
