New Delhi – Two days after Narendra Modi emerged victorious in India’s national elections, Kiran battled the heat and crowd to see the man she had voted for in the ancient city of Varanasi.

Modi, a leader of the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party, who took oath as the prime minister of India on Monday in New Delhi. He will head the first government with a clear majority since 1984.

Kiran, 30, was stopped by the security personnel, guarding the check points on the way to the banks of the Ganges river, where Modi attended a prayer ceremony on May 18.

“If I could meet him then I would ask him how will he make India safe for women,” she told Al Jazeera.
