Varanasi: BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today took blessings from local priests and elders here after an over five-hour drive-through in this temple town following cancellation of a rally and a Ganga pujan programme.


Modi reached his central election office for Lok Sabha polls late tonight after driving through the city in his motorcade which took more than five hours on a route that normally takes just about half an hour.  People queued up in large number on both sides of his route, making it difficult for the motorcade to move.  

Before proceeding to the airport, Modi spent some time at his election office where he thanked party workers and local leaders while priests also performed an ‘aarti' for him, BJP leaders present there said.
