Modi’s Varanasi the next Kyoto? Union minister KJ Alphons says PM’s constituency a ‘dirty city’, losing tourists due to unclean surroundings

Varanasi, the Lok Sabha constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is a dirty city, Union Minister KJ Alphons has said. The BJP leader was in Varanasi on Tuesday where he attended the spectacular Ganga aarti on the Dashashwamedh ghat. Alphons said that Varanasi has the potential to attract tourists but the unclean surroundings have resulted in a drop in the number of tourists visiting here in the last few years. He reportedly also said that the river Ganga was getting polluted due to the offering of milk and flowers as part of Hindu rituals. Alphons added that the narrow roads in the city also contributed to the traffic jams. Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party has taken a dig at the BJP over its own central ministers remark. Party spokesperson Juhie Singh said that neither the Centre nor the Yogi Adityanath government has done any development work in the PMs constituency. It is imminent now that the governments both at the Centre and in Lucknow have not done any development work and PM also knows about it. Party spokesperson Rakesh Tripathi said, The situation in Varanasi has improved and people of the city are also acknowledging the changes.5 levels in 2016. In the Swachh Survekshan (survey) Rankings, 2017, Varanasi was ranked 32nd cleanest city in India.
