The ‘key’ to Varanasi

As per the traditional customs, whenever a foreign chief visits the temple city with the country’s PM, mayor gives him the key to enter the city and while returning the country’s representative returns the key. The tradition is being followed for Modi, Abe visit too by Varanasi Mayor Ram Gopal Mohle.
