Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a number of schemes for the poor in Varanasi on Monday and emphasised on harnessing solar energy for cooking. 

After inaugurating a 101-megawatt solar power plant in Mirzapur along with French President Emmanuel Macron, Mr Modi laid the foundation stone of various development projects worth over Rs. 800 crore in Varanasi. 

He also flagged off a new train - Kanshi-Patna Jan Shatabdi Express - between Varanasi and Patna.
