Allahabad, Apr. 21: Justice Girdhar Malviya, a grandson of noted freedom fighter Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya, said Monday that he has agreed to become one of the proposers of Narendra Modi’s candidature from Varanasi, as he believes the latter has the potential to take India forward.

I am hopeful that keeping all the traditions of India intact, Modi will take the nation forward,” Malviya said.
