On the Occasion of Vijayadashami Congress president Sonia Gandhi offered Dussehra prayers at the Bheemanakolli temple in Begur village of HD Kote assembly segment in Karnataka.
Mrs. Gandhi, who arrived in Mysuru on Monday afternoon for the party’s ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra in Karnataka, which is currently on a two-day break for Ayudha Puja and Vijayadashami (Tuesday and Wednesday), is staying in a private resort here.
She prayed to the presiding deity at the old temple in the village near Nagrahole forest reserve in the morning.
Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Wednesday said in a tweet. Bringing about a difference between Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s politics, Surjewala said while the PM is holding vote-garnering rallies in election-bound Himachal Pradesh, Sonia is offering prayers with simplicity.
It will be after a long time that Mrs. Gandhi will participate in the party’s public event where a large number of Congress workers are participating.
