Youth hurls pamphlet at PM Narendra Modi’s parade in Varanasi, raises tough questions on note ban

A youth in Varanasi, constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday threw a pamphlet containing hard questions about demonetisation, while Modi was touring through the city.

The incident took place in Kabir Nagar locality around noon where the PM had paid visit to monitor the laying of underground electricity cables and installation of heritage streetlights and special lighting arrangements for heritage buildings.


Hundreds of people were on both sides of the otherwise busy road which had been cordoned off in view of Modi's visit.

A young person who were in the crowd sporting a muffler around his head like a turban, threw a pamphlet in the direction of the parade while it was passing through. Police who got an alarm call, rushed to the site to catch him, but he managed to flee.

Screenshots of the pamphlet hit viral in Social media in which the man names himself as “Abhinav Tripathi, a social worker”  asked PM Modi to “acknowledge that your visit to Kashi is being opposed”.

He had also alleged  “harassment of poor residents of Kashi at the hands of bank officials, lack of action against criminals controlling temples, mosques, churches and gurudwaras, appointment of people with dubious character to key posts by the Vice Chancellor of Benares Hindu University and no jobs for the youth here despite announcement of schemes worth billions among others”.
