The Congress and AAP challenge to Narendra Modi in Varanasi was only in the media, as people there are rooting for the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate, senior BJP leader C P Thakur claimed on Friday.

“Challenge by Ajai Rai of Congress and APP leader Arvind Kejriwal exists only in media,” Thakur, the BJP Vice-President told PTI over phone from Varanasi.

“We have toured more than 80 villages in the Varanasi constituency and found that people from all castes and religions are rooting for Narendra Modi to contribute in making a strong nation,” Thakur, a prominent Bhumihar leader, said.

He said that BJP leader Ramkripal Yadav and many other Bihar BJP leaders, including Muslims canvassed for Modi for the past one week.

“There is virtually no contest for Narendra Modi in Varanasi as reflected by tremendous amount of enthusiasm shown by people from different cross-sections,” he added.

          Absolutely true! Votes of Muslim women and youth too are largely balanced in NaMo's favour as he offers them a silver-lining of hope amidst an extremely hostile and hopeless political climate in the state as well as nation.

              he is failure anyway only wanting temporary headlines as he did in Delhi and finally had to leave the post when the actual time to show his capability arose - and just blamed it on him not being able to remove corruption - if he could not do it in a small state like Delhi what can he do elsewhere ??
