I'm writing to first-time voters with full pride, confidence-PM Modi

"Greetings to you, as Pradhan Sevak of Bharat and your Parliamentarian, today, I am writing to you with full pride and confidence. You are going to exercise your right to vote for the first time in the 2024 Lok Sabha election. I congratulate you. This opportunity to participate in the democratic process is a privilege which will witness your participation in nation-building because democracy is not only a form of governance but also the 'adharshila' (cornerstone) of our Independence," said the letter by Prime Minister Modi to first-time voters.

He further writes, "You are a witness as to how Varanasi has touched new heights of development in the last 10 years." Kashi region BJP's OBC Morcha Vice-President Somnath Vishwakarma, along with his team, is distributing the letters.

The Prime Minister also sent a felicitation note to the first-time voters which is also being distributed, said Vishwakarma.

PM Modi nomination filing in Varanasi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi filed his nomination on May 14 (Tuesday), an event attended by several NDA leaders including Union ministers and chief ministers in a show of strength as he seeks a third term from the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency. Sporting a white kurta-pajama and a blue sadri, Modi reached the district collectorate after a busy morning, which included an aarti on the banks of the Ganga at the Dashashwamedh ghat and prayers at the city's Kaal Bhairav temple.

Immediately after filing his papers, the prime minister headed for the Rudraksha Convention Centre to address local party leaders and workers.

BJP president JP Nadda and Union ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Hardeep Singh Puri, Anupriya Patel and Ramdas Athawale were among the leaders who flanked Modi as he emerged from the collectorate after filing his papers.
