New Delhi, Jan 28 (TIWN): It was homecoming for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday morning, as he reached Varanasi, the constituency that had re-elected him for a second consecutive term as Member of Parliament.

As Modi landed at the Police Lines helipad and made his way via road towards Kashi Vishwanath temple, people lined the roads on both sides to catch a glimpse of their MP.
