Mr Modi said that all-round development of Kashi is going on and the city is being rejuvenated. He said, it is the responsibility of the party workers that the benefits of the government's public welfare schemes reach the poor and common people. He said, on the occasion of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas from 21st to 23rd January next year NRIs from all over the world will arrive in Varanasi. He said, people of Kashi will show them the city's spiritual culture and the culture of Indian values. He appealed to people of Varanasi to contribute to the success of Pravasi Bhartiya Divas and for the global identity of Varanasi. He also guided the party workers regarding the preparations for the event. The Prime Minister also appealed to the party workers in Kashi to make successful the "Swacchata Hi Seva" campaign which will begin from 15th of next month till 2nd October.
