VARANASI (TIP): Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi will file his nomination from the Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency on April 24, party general secretary Amit Shah said Saturday, April 19. “Modi will file his nomination April 24.

Then the Modi wave will soon turn into a tsunami,” Amit Shah said at a press conference. Modi is also contesting from Vadodra, his “karma Bhoomi”, as he describes the place. He filed his nomination from Vadodra on Wednesday, April 16. Modi kicked off his poll campaign in Vadodara by 9.45 am and began the roadshow from the historic Kirti Stambh circle.

Thousands turned up to catch a glimpse of Modi who passed through a two kilometer stretch in the city. He then reached the district election officer’s office near Kothi crossroads to file his nomination. A tea vendor from the city was among Modi’s proposers. Congress’s Madhusudan Mistry is his opponent.
