Poll strategist Prashant Kishor said on Sunday that Kashi was the best model of the failure of Modi government’s functioning.
“There has been no development in Varanasi in last two years. The condition in other parts of the country can be easily gauged from the plight of Prime Minister’s constituency,” he said.
Kishor visited Varanasi on Sunday ahead of the proposed roadshow of Congress president Sonia Gandhi on August 2. He met Congress members at the party offices in Maidagin and Englishia Line and in Pindra assembly constituency represented by MLA Ajay Rai.
“Looking at Kashi, one can easily guess the condition elsewhere in the country. If the BJP wins the assembly election, the entire UP will meet a similar fate,” said Kishor while addressing Congress workers here.
“Congress is the only party that can counter the BJP. It has openly protested against the BJP in Varanasi. There are several political parties which make tall claims about launching campaigns against the Modi government but have not been able to muster courage to dare the BJP in Kashi,” he said.
Kishor exhorted the Congress workers to work hard for the assembly election and assured them that the party would form the government in the state.
