Congress has claimed that the crowd at Narendra Modi's Varanasi roadshow was hired. 

They said that, 75% of the crowd was called for. Around 1 lakh people were wearing the same t-shirt and so they called this a managed event. "Around only 20-25% of Varanasi locals were present and the remaining 75% of the crowd were from other places of the county," said a Congress spokesperson.
