Kashi-Vishwanath temple corridor joins the Baba Vishwanath temple with the Ganga. Around 250 houses were razed to build it. Residents tried to save their homes, but failed.
Now, they're waiting for the 2019 Lok Sabha election results. People are helpless in the face of PM Modi-CM Yogi's plan. BJP has high expectations from the corridor. It is PM Modi's dream project and the biggest showcase of 'Hindutva.'
The corridor is expected to be as grand as the Somnath temple. Its construction budget is Rs 600 crore and stretches from Kashi Vishwanath to Ahilyabai Ghat. Will the 2019 Lok Sabha elections bring any relief for these families?
