In Mirzapur, which adjoins Varanasi, Priyanka Gandhi visited the famous Vindhyavasini Maa temple in Vindhyachal, where she was heckled by devotees waiting for her to finish her visit so that they could offer prayers.
As soon as she entered inside the temple, the crowd waiting outside started shouting “Har Har Modi”. Soon, Congress workers pitched in and started shouting “Rahul, Rahul” and started ringing the bells on the doors of the temple.
After offering prayers at the temple, Priyanka visited Dargah of Hazarat Khwaja Ismile Chishti. She took the boat on Bhatauli Ghat and travelled about 15 km on the Ganga to reach Sindhora Ghat in Mirzapur late evening. She faced cries of “Modi, Modi”at this ghat as well, with some youth chanting the slogan. However, she soon took a smaller boat to reach Chunar, where she held a road show late on Tuesday night.
Priyanka said the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh is planning to construct cow shelters for stray cattle, and talked of the loan waiver that the Congress governments in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan have already given farmers.
