Warm welcome to Congress at Varanasi roadshow

By on Wednesday, August 03, 2016
Sonia Gandhi was supposed to address party workers at the end of the road show and lately to visit Kashi Vishwanath Temple in the evening to offer prayers. 
Earlier in the day, amidst a cheering crowd, the Congress president began her road show in the poll-bound state by paying tributes to Dalit icon B R Ambedkar in Varanasi, the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Gandhi and hundreds of her supporters gathered near a statue of Ambedkar in Kutchery area and paid floral tributes to the architect of the Constitution.
Gandhi, along with her cavalcade of more than 50 vehicles, then took off on a road show in Nadesar area. The Congress president waved hand to the crowd from her car as thousands tried to catch a glimpse of her. Enthusiastic women were seen cheering and waving as she proceeded towards Chauka Ghat where many Congressmen danced to the beats of drums.
Earlier, she was given a rousing welcome by party workers, led by Pindra MLA Ajay Rai, on her arrival at Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport here.
At Babatpur tri-section, thousands of Congress workers joined the cavalcade on motorcycles. The slogans of ‘Sonia Gandhi zindabad, Rahul Gandhi zindabad’ reverberated in the air.
UPCC president Raj Babbar, Congress’s chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit, senior leaders Salman Khurshid, Pramod Tewari, Sriprakash Jaiswal, Rita Bahuguna Joshi, former MP, Anu Tandon, MLA Ajay Rai and former MP Rajesh Mishra were among those accompanying her in the road show.
