After inaugurating the Kashi Vishwanath Dham corridor, witnessing the Ganga Aarti and meeting Chief Ministers of BJP-ruled states, the Prime Minister reached Godaulia crossing at around midnight.

The photographs posted by the Prime Minister showed Yogi Adityanath with him as they visited parts of the city and the Banaras railway station.

In the morning, it had been a largely solo affair for the Prime Minister as visuals showed him offering prayers at the Ganga and performing rituals at the Kashi Vishwanath temple before launching the temple corridor. He also showered flowers on construction workers involved in the project and later shared lunch with them.

While the day’s events indicated that the Prime Minister would be the BJP’s main face for the crucial Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh next year, the night’s photographs sent a message that Mr Adityanath, too, would be a key figure in the party’s campaign.

The photographs also appeared to send a message that Mr Adityanath has the backing of the Prime Minister as the party plays up its “double engine government” plank in the run-up to the polls.

The BJP has also put up a show of unity through the Varanasi events as all its Chief Ministers from across the country reached the temple town for the grand events. The Prime Minister also held a review meeting with them.
