Varanasi:May 11th On the last day of campaigning Rahul Gandhi is driving in an open truck through Varanasi, from where Modi , the BJP's prime ministerial candidate, is running for Parliament.
Just days ago, Mr Modi, 64, held a massive rally in Mr Gandhi's constituency of Amethi, so the young Congress leader's visit to Varanasi is being seen as payback.
After 6 pm today, campaigning is banned for the final 41 seats that will vote on Monday, Varanasi among them. So today's programmes are assembled to appeal to an audience far beyond the borders of India's spiritual capital.
Opinion polls show the BJP will rout the Congress to get the maximum seats in the national election.
