VARANASI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the temple town of Varanasi on Saturday for his road show amid huge enthusiasm from his supporters here in his parliamentary constituency.

Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah and other senior leaders were present to greet him when he arrived at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU) in a special Indian Air Force chopper.

After a brief interaction, he moved in his bulletproof car in a cavalcade to a guest house. 

Thousands of people were lined up along the routes of Modi's road show, ahead of the March 8 polls here.

A minor scuffle between Samajwadi Party (SP) and BJP workers took place outside the Singh Dwar of the BHU from where the Prime Minister will start his road show. 

At another point, SP workers erected a stage in the middle of the route road and the police had to forcefully remove it before detaining seven SP workers.
