Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh): An ardent fan of Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered a gold crown weighing 1.25 kg to Lord Hanuman at Sankat Mochan Temple in Varanasi to mark Prime Minister Narender Modi’s 69 th birthday.
The fan identified as Arvind Singh made the offerings at the revered temple on Monday, a day before the Prime Minister’s birthday.
Singh said that he had taken a pledge to offer the gold crown to Lord Hanuman if the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who represents Varanasi parliamentary constituency, returns to power at Centre for a consecutive second-term.
“Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, I took a vow to offer gold crown weighing 1.25 kg to Lord Hanuman if Modi ji formed the government for the second time,” he told ANI.
“He is the one who is building the nation in a way that was not done in the last 75 years. So it was decided that this crown would be offered to Lord Hanuman a day before his birthday with faith that Prime Minister Modi’s and India’s future would shine like gold. It is a gift for him on behalf of Kashi people,” a priest said.
Late on Monday night, Prime Minister Modi reached Ahmedabad and was welcomed by Gujarat Governor Acharya Devvrat and state Chief Minister Vijay Rupani at the airport. He will be celebrating his birthday in the state.
The BJP is celebrating Prime Minister Modi’s birthday as ‘Seva Saptah’ from September 14 to September 20. The party has announced that several social initiatives will be undertaken by the party leaders across the nation during this week-long period. (ANI)

Washington [USA]: US President Donald Trump on Monday (local time) said that he will be meeting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Houston, Texas.
Replying to a question about his participation in ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event in Houston this Sunday, Trump said, “I will see Prime Minister Modi and I will be meeting with India and Pakistan and I think a lot of progress has been made there…lot of progress”.
The White House had confirmed that the US President will be making a joint appearance with the Prime Minister at the event.
The mega event is believed to be one of the largest events to welcome a foreign head of government ever in the history of the United States.
It will mark the first time that the two leaders would meet outside of either capital Washington DC or New York, where the United Nations is headquartered.
Over 50,000 people have already been registered for the event, which will be hosted by the Texas India Forum.
Modi’s chemistry with both Trump and former President Barack Obama reflect that the Indian Prime Minister has been able to transcend the political divide in the US.
Moreover, the fact that House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, the second-highest-ranking Democrat, will also address the gathering, further reflects the strong bipartisan support for the relationship between the two countries. (ANI)
