Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath reviewed developmental projects in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency Varanasi on Saturday, and directed officials to speed up the work.

Adityanath, who is on a two-day visit to the temple town, offered prayers at the Kaal Bhairav and Kashi Vishwanath temples on Saturday morning.

The chief minister also inspected the government divisional hospital, and instructed officials and doctors to provide best care to patients.

He also inspected the Manduadeeh bridge and the under-construction Samneghat-Ramnagar bridge over the Ganga.

Though the foundation of the 922-metre Samneghat bridge was laid in 2005 by then chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, work has remained incomplete.

Adityanath also went to Sankuldhara, a pond that is being rejuvenated.

People from across Varanasi lined up the roads and chanted “Yogi, Yogi” on getting a glimpse of the chief minister.

Adityanath also visited Prime Minister Modi’s local public relations office at Ravindrapuri where he listened to grievances of the people.
