VARANASI: On  the day of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheduled visit to his Lok Sabha constituency on February 22, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also likely to visit the Ravidas temple here.

On the occasion of Guru Ravidas Jayanti, the Prime Minister will first visit the Ravidas temple in the morning hours.

He will spend 15 mintues at the temple and then will head to address the Banaras Hindu University’s centennial year convocation function.

After delivering the convocation address as the chief guest, the PM would fly back to Delhi the same day in the afternoon.
