B’DAY CEL­E­BRA­TIONS: PARTY WORK­ERS TO GREET TOURISTS AT GHATS

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - UTTARPRADESH -

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) work­ers will greet do­mes­tic and for­eign tourists visit­ing iconic ghats of Varanasi on Sun­day evening as part of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s birth­day cel­e­bra­tions. Sixty-seven out of the 84 ghats will sparkle in the glow of earthen lamps on the oc­ca­sion. Kashi re­gion BJP spokesper­son San­jay Bhard­waj said, “The BJP mem­bers will wel­come tourists at the ghats and tell them about PM Modi’s birth­day cel­e­bra­tions and de­vel­op­men­tal works car­ried out in the spir­i­tual city by him.” The cel­e­bra­tion will con­tinue from dawn to dusk. A spe­cial event will take place at Assi Ghat where Modi wielded a spade to re­move silt and launch the Varanasi leg of the Swachh Bharat Ab­hiyan on Novem­ber 7, 2014. A 67 kilo­gram lad­doo will also be dis­trib­uted among the lo­cals. Union rail­way min­is­ter Piyush Goyal is likely to at­tend the event.
