He is expected to hold public meetings at Ballia in Uttar Pradesh, Buxer and Sasaram in Bihar, and Chandigarh in Punjab, all of which will witness polling in the last phase of elections on May 19.
As campaigning for Lok Sabha polls has entered its last leg, political parties have stepped up their attack against each other in a bid to outdo one another.
The seven-phase Lok Sabha elections began on April 11, and 59 Lok Sabha seats will vote in the final phase on May 19. Results will be announced on May 23.
Here are the Live Updates from PM Modi's Election Rallies:
PM Modi's message to Varanasi
Calling himself a "Kashi vaasi" - resident of Varanasi -- Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is seeking re-election from the Lok Sabha seat, issued a message for people of the constituency and sought their blessings for victory.
PM Modi outlined his personal and emotional association with the city and its people in a video released by his website on Monday.
"It is often said that whosoever come to Kashi even once, becomes part of the city. In the last five years, I have experienced this every passing moment. In molding me and giving a direction to my political and spiritual being, Kashi has a huge influence on me."
PM Modi underlined that Kashi is not a mere word for him, but an inspiration, in terms of religion, spirituality, and culture. "I am fortunate that its people provided me with an opportunity to serve," he said.
PM Modi addressees rally in Buxar, Bihar
After response in six phases of polls, anger of opposition leaders has touched seventh heaven.
Not for once have I lived for myself or my family during my tenure as Gujarat chief minister and Prime Minister. People of this country my family.
Opposition leaders know they cannot win, hence they are drawing satisfaction from hurling abuses.
Parties that abused each other will again be fighting among themselves once results are out, says PM Modi in Ballia, Uttar Pradesh.
PM Modi Addresses Rally In Ballia
Samjawadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and even the Congress -- those belonging to "mahamilavat" (great adulteration) are busy in abusing Modi, says PM.
There is no day when they do not abuse Modi.
I have only one caste which is "poverty", that is why I have rebelled against poverty.
People will give befitting reply to abuses hurled at me by "mahamilavati" (adulterated) parties through their votes.
"Mahamilavati" (adulterated) people dabble in caste politics and replenish coffers, build bungalows and palaces for themselves and relatives.
I challenge the Opposition to show if I have any benami property, farmhouse, shopping complex or money in any foreign bank.
