New Delhi, May 23, 2019: BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, who calls himself a “Kashi vasi”, is leading in nearly three lakh votes in his Lok Sabha constituency Varanasi. Shalini Yadav, the SP-BSP Mahagathbandhan candidate is second, while Congress’ Ajay Rai is trailing at third position.

modi-win.Even in 2014, Modi won Varanasi with a landslide margin of nearly 3.37 lakh votes against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal- the highest ever vote margin for the Lok Sabha seat.

Interestingly, the BJP was seemingly so confident of a win in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Varanasi that the Prime Minister did not address even a single public campaign rally here. He only came to file his nomination and held a massive roadshow prior to that.

When he filed his papers, Modi was flanked by top NDA leaders – Amit Shah, Uddhav Thackeray, Prakash Singh Badal, Ram Vilas Paswan, Rajnath Singh, among others — in a show of strength. Expressing his gratitude to the people, the PM had urged the voters to come out in large numbers. “Don’t stay away thinking I am winning,” he appealed.
