Assam minister Sarma along with many other leaders of the BJP and allies camped at Varanasi to praise Modi who filed nomination papers for Varanasi Lok Sabha seat on Friday.
From the Northeast, apart from Assam minister Sarma, there were also Meghalaya chief minister and National People’s Party president Conrad K. Sangma, and Nagaland chief minister and Nationalist Democratic Pdogressive Party (NDPP) leader Neiphiu Rio who reached Varanasi to accompany Modi in filing nomination.
Minister Sarma is known for making visits to famous temples across the world on different occasions including Dhakeswhari temple at Dhakla in Bangladesh, Kamakhya temple at Guwahati.
So he feels it is ‘Baba Vishwanath’ who has “blessed Bharat (India) with such an extraordinary leader, a visionary, ‘Vishwa guru’ Narendra Modi”.
Stating that he feels “blessed and extremely privileged” to be at Varanasi, the “pious land of Kashi”, Sarma took no time to praise Modi on his Twitter handle with the words, mostly used by the devotees of Lord Shiva ‘Har Har Mahadev”.
Prime Minister Modi is seeking re-election to his current parliamentary seat in Varanasi, where he defeated dozens of rivals in 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
Varanasi, which is also known as Kashi, is in eastern Uttar Pradesh.
