On Eve of UP CM Announcement, Manoj Sinha Visits Varanasi Temples

Amid speculations that he might become the new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Manoj Sinha, the Communications Minister, visited many temples in Varanasi on Saturday, officials said.

The senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader greeted onlookers and supporters as he walked to the Kaal Bhairav temple.

After spending some time there, he went to the famous Kashi Vishwanath temple and offered prayers at the sanctum sanctorum.

Surrounded by elite commandoes and local policemen, the minister, however, refused to speak on any issue. Sinha then left for the Sankatmochan temple.

The 312 newly elected BJP lawmakers are set to meet at the Lok Bhawan - new secretariat building built by outgoing Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, at 5 p.m. on Saturday evening where the leader of the legislature party will be elected.
