“...dunia bhar ghoom aaye hain. Japan gaye wahan gale lage, Pakistan gaye wahan Biryani khaayi, China gaye wahan gale lage. Lekin Varanasi ke ek gareeb parivaar se gale lagte dekha hai (He has travelled world over. Went to Japan, hugged there; went to Pakistan, ate biryani; went to China, hugged there as well. But has anyone ever seen him(PM Modi) hugging a poor family from Varanasi)?” said Priyanka Gandhi during a roadshow in Ghaziabad.
