While on Thursday PM Modi held a road show in which a great amount of people came to support him and during the road show he passed by ancient temples and ghats - the seven-kilometre-long road show took two-and-a-half hours and finally ended in the holiest ghat of them all, the Dashashwamedh. The prime minister also attended the evening aarti at this ghat on the banks of the river Ganga.
