Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka visited Lord Omkareshwar

Khandwa, 25 November (HS). Rahul Gandhi reached Omkareshwar on the third day of Bharat Jodo Yatra in Madhya Pradesh. He was accompanied by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Rahul and Priyanka attended the evening aarti of Maa Narmada here. He performed Maa Narmada Aarti and also offered chunri to Maa Narmada. After this he had darshan of Lord Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga and both the brothers and sisters stayed in the Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga temple for about five minutes.

In Omkareshwar, Rahul Gandhi was seen dressed in religious colours. He wore a maroon color turban on his head. Garland was seen around the neck. Also, he was wearing a yellow shawl with Om written on it, while Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was wearing a chunri on her head. During this, many Congress leaders and workers including former Chief Minister Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh were present.

Rahul Gandhi did not make any political statement during the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Friday, but he followed the local tradition by offering Jyotirlinga Omkareshwar darshan and worship as well as Narmada Aarti and Chunari to Maa Narmada, following the Congress’s growing trend towards soft Hindutva. Definitely gave a hint.

Bharat Jodo Yatra started from Kherda village in Khargone district on Friday morning. Morning break happened at Bhanbard after walking about 10 kms. During this, Rahul Gandhi met the villagers displaced due to government projects in the state and listened to their problems. He said that their rehabilitation is the responsibility of the government, which it has forgotten. Rahul Gandhi said that your tears will not go in vain. Together we will fight for your rights and win.

The journey started from Bhanbard in Khargone district at around 3.30 pm after the morning break. Many Congress leaders and workers including his sister Priyanka Gandhi and former CM Digvijay Singh accompanied Rahul Gandhi in the journey. Boxer Vijender Singh also reached the yatra. During this, he took a selfie with Rahul Gandhi showing his punch. Both were also seen taunting their moustaches. The yatra reached its last stop Sanawad after walking 23 kms. People here warmly welcomed the visit. The night halt of the journey is at Moratka.

Before the night rest, Rahul Gandhi along with his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra came straight from Mortakka to Omkareshwar. Before the worship, he reached Brahmapuri Ghat and participated in the aarti of Maa Narmada. Rahul, wearing a saffron Uttariya, garland around his neck and a turban, began the aarti amidst chanting of mantras. Rahul was accompanied by sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, her husband Robert Vadra, son Rehan, former chief minister Kamal Nath and state in-charge JP Agarwal. Worshiped with all the rituals including Tilak on the head. After worship, worshiped mother Reva by offering chunri. Later he visited and worshiped Jyotirlinga Omkareshwar.

Rahul strengthened the image of soft Hindutva by participating in the worship of Jyotirlinga and the aarti of Maa Narmada. Earlier, when Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reached Indore to participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra, someone presented her a mother’s chunri, which she placed on her lap with respect by touching her head. Her husband Robert Vadra was also wearing a T-shirt with Mahakal written on it.

Performed aarti with everyone for the first time, my heart is happy: Priyanka

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that I have come here for the first time. The experience of worship and Narmada Aarti here was wonderful. For the first time we have performed Narmada Aarti with the family. My husband and brother Rahul were also with me in the aarti. It was a matter of happiness.

There was a stir due to falling of paramotor in the field

During the journey on Friday, suddenly the paramotor fell in the field. Due to which the stampede was saved. Paramotoring was being done in support of the yatra without informing the Khargone police. Seeing the paramotor, the police stopped the flight after 4 kilometers of the start of the journey. A total of 2 paramotors were to be flown. Was flying over a trip. The other suddenly fell in the field as soon as it flew. The police immediately stopped this.
