Lucknow: UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today exhorted people of Varanasi to reject ‘Modi tea' as it will create acidity.
Varanasi has become cynosure in Lok Sabha elections as BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is contesting from this seat. Former UP minister Kailash Chaurasiya is taking on Modi from this seat on SP ticket.
Akhilesh said that it's better to opt for ‘Paan' as it helps in proper digestion. Akhilesh was referring to the SP candidate Kailash Chaurasia who comes from a community that is better known for producing and selling Paan (betel).

Akhilesh also referred to a renowned TV journalist who also belongs to same Churasia community and said that even he is an example of Chaurasias discharging their duties sincerely.
