Chouhan will campaign in Varanasi for about five hours on Tuesday evening, BJP sources said.

Before Varanasi, Chouhan will also take part in canvassing for the party candidates in Ghosi, Balia, Chandausi and Robertsganj Lok Sabha seats on May 6, they said.

Battle for the holy city has became a high-stake one since Modi decided to contest from there, with AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal and Congress' Ajay Rai also in the fray.
