Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited his parliamentary constituency, Varanasi, on Saturday to renew contact with his constituents in an early start to the campaign for next year’s Lok Sabha elections.

Before travelling to Varanasi, Prime Minister Modi stopped in Ghazipur, where he released a commemorative postage stamp on Maharaja Suheldev and addressed a public rally. The PM’s rally in Ghazipur is being seen as an effort by the BJP to woo the Rajbhar community there, which revers Maharaja Suheldo.

After reaching Varanasi on Saturday, Modi attended the ‘one district, one product’ regional summit at the Deendayal Hastakala Sankul (Trade Facilitation Centre & Crafts Museum), and participated in programmes involving beneficiaries of several central and state government schemes. The Prime Minister also inaugurated the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and South Asia Regional Centre (ISARC) on the campus of the National Seed Research and Training Centre (NSRTC) in Varanasi.
