Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently handed 100 pairs of jute shoes to workers at the Kashi Vishwanath Dham in Varanasi, which is in his parliamentary constituency.

The Prime Minister made the touching gesture after learning that most people working at the Kashi Vishwanath Dham did so barefooted because it is illegal to wear leather or rubber-based footwear on temple grounds.

"He immediately got 100 pairs of jute footwear procured and sent over to Kashi Vishwanath Dham so that those performing their duties don't have to stay bare-footed in the chilling cold," a government source said.

Priests, persons conducting seva, security guards, sanitation workers, and others received jute footwear.

"Needless to say, the people working at Kashi Vishwanath Dham were very happy. This is yet another example of PM's attention to minute details and his concern for the poor," the government source added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recently inaugurated the first phase of the Kashi Vishwanath Dham project in Varanasi.

The Shri Kashi Vishwanath Dham project, which cost roughly Rs 339 crores to build, is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream project. In March of this year, he lay the foundation stone for the project.
