“When development work started for Kashi, the protesters protested only for the sake of protest. When Kashi had decided that Vishwanath Corridor would be built till Baba’s court, the protesters had said a lot about it too. But today the glory of Kashi is being revived by the grace of Baba. Centuries ago, the direct connection of Baba’s court to Maa Ganga is being re-established,” says PM Modi.

PM Modi continues his outreach to farmers, says new farm laws have given farmers freedom from middlemen.

“People of Kashi are live Shiva and Devi. Today, these lamps are also lit for those who have surrendered their life for the country. I salute our security forces,” says PM Modi.

For some inheritance means their own family,” says PM Modi.
