Varanasi: BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi has established a huge lead of nearly 90,000 votes against his nearest rival Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party.

According to trends available by noon, Modi had secured 96,243 votes as against Kejriwal's 27,101.

Sensing a certain victory for their leader from this eastern UP Lok Sabha seat, BJP supporters started celebrating at the Paharia Sabzi Mandi on the outskirts of the city, where counting of votes is in progress.

Beating of drums and chanting of slogans in praise of Modi were heard near the counting centre.
