Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh (UP) state government has set its plans to hold a grand month-long celebration in Varanasi following the inauguration of the Kashi Vishwanath corridor.
Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi is likely to inaugurate the corridor, which is reportedly being completed in a war-footing, on 13th December.
Accordingly, devotees wouldn’t have the access to the Kashi Vishwanath temple from 1st December onward so that work on the corridor could be conducted throughout the 24 hours for it to be completed in time.
The PM will be visiting Varanasi from 13th December-15th December and will be participating in multiple other programs.
Meanwhile, a chief ministers’ conference has been planned to be conducted on 15th December in which the CMs of the other BJP-ruled states will also be present.
Subsequently, the cabinet meeting of the UP state government will be held at the Kashi Vishwanath corridor on 20th December.
Programs such as the Sant Samagam amongst others will continue to take place at the location until the 6th of January, Economic Times reports.
The state government is proactively working towards highlighting the developmental works across Varanasi, which is also PM Modi’s parliamentary constituency, ahead of the assembly polls in UP next year.
