"God... give me strength, so that I can work for the city, for my poor weaver brothers...so that Kashi can become a spiritual capital of the world," Modi said. The BJP leader sought to project common links between his birthplace in Vadnagar in Gujarat and Varanasi, saying both were pilgrim centres for worshippers of Lord Shiva. Modi also sought to reach out to the weaver community of Varanasi (also called Banaras), which makes up a sizeable section of the population in this constituency and many of them are muslims. He said if he becomes the Prime Minister, he would provide encouragement to them in various ways so that their business could grow and expand. "I can say about the weavers here. This is a valuable amanat (legacy). Technological upgradation, marketing, branding, designing will be provided...If we create all these support bases, I dont see any reason why Kashi weavers would not be able to take on Chinese competition," he said. To buttress his point, he said after he became the Chief Minister of Gujarat, he had provided encouragement to poor muslims engaged in kite business and their commerce had grown manifold. "I did some research. Though no state government would pat attention to kites, I studied and found kites used to travel to 24 places before it could be produced," Modi said. After taking certain steps, the kite industry, which was worth Rs 35 crore in 2002, has now grown to Rs 700 crore. "And all the poor muslim brothers-sisters sit in their huts and produce kites," he added. He also said that there is talk about holistic healthcare across the world and such products were in demand. These require global marketing. He also spoke of his intention to work for the improvement of river Ganga saying and highlighted his work on Sabarmati river front. "The way Mahatama Gandhi got to be known as Sabarmati ka Sant....I had a chance to work on Sabarmati. And even if you watch on the internet, you will get to see what kind of work can be done. God should give me strength to work and the whole should hail Mother Ganges and Kashi," he said. "I have got a chance to serve this land where Buddha had goven this message, this land of Varnasi Sarnath, this land of Bhole Baba, this land where the powers of sankatmochak are limitless and my mind says Mother Ganges has called me here," the BJP leader said.

They have been asked to put forth their stands on the charges by Saturday morning failing which the EC will take action without further referring the matter to them. The show cause notices were issued following complaints and reports by poll authorities in Uttar Pradesh. The Commission has already expressed "displeasure" at Verma's "biggest goon" remark against Modi. Referring to Katiyar's speech made in Sant Kabir Nagar in UP on April 15, the EC notice quoted him as saying that the Muzaffarnagar riots were bigger than Gujarat riots. He had reportedly said that "no attempt" was made by the UP government to check the riots and senior SP leader and UP minister Azam Khan was given a "free hand" to issue directions to administration officials. Katiyar had said once Modi becomes the Prime Minister, riots will be probed and it will be "ensured" that Khan is sent to jail as he had "planned" the violence last year in west UP. Addressing a public meeting in Kanpur on April 20, Verma had reportedly said that once Rahul Gandhi becomes the Prime Minister, Modi and his close aide Amit shah will be "jailed for life" for Godhra riots. He had also reportedly said that as a 20-year-old, Modi had committed a "major crime" and had fled him home. He had said the BJP's PM nominee will never reach the PM's post and go to "graveyard".
