Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to inaugurate developmental projects in Varanasi and Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh on December 29 and address a rally there.

This is Modi’s second visit to his Lok Sabha constituency in the last two months.

Varanasi itinerary

The Prime Minister is expected to inaugurate the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and South Asia Regional Centre (ISARC) in Varanasi. He will also attend the 'One District, One Product Regional Summit' at Deendayal Hastakala Sankul and launch developmental projects worth Rs 508 crore there.

Ghazipur itinerary

Modi will also launch a commemorative postal stamp on the Maharaja Suheldeo and address a public rally in Ghazipur.

However, everything in the garden is not rosy for Modi lately as some alliances have started to gang up against the BJP ahead of the general elections 2019 demanding more authority in the alliance.

NDA allies, like Apna Dal and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) now claim that they are being treated badly by the BJP.

Om Prakash Rajbhar, a senior minister in the Yogi Adityanath government and SBSP president, said that he will give Modi’s rally a miss after conveying that he is offended by the fact that the commemorative postal stamp on backward caste will not carry their leader Maharaja Suheldev Rajbhar’s full name.

"I will not attend the December 29 [today] programme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Ghazipur," he said as reported by India Today.

Apna Dal (S) has also said that they will not attend Modi’s rally after fictions with BJP.
