Narottam Mishra says Rahul, Priyanka try to encash temple visits during elections

Madhya Pradesh: Narottam Mishra, the Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh, slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for visiting temples ahead of crucial elections.

On October 30, bypolls were held for one Lok Sabha seat and three Assembly seats, including Prithvipur, Raigaon (SC), and Jobat (ST). Priyanka Gandhi Vadra visited the Pitambara Peeth temple in Datia, Madhya Pradesh, a day before the scheduled elections.

In response to their temple visit, Mishra said that while he welcomes the two politicians to the state, he also encourages them to visit before and after the elections. " I welcome Priyanka ji to Datia. However, they should also pay a visit after the elections. Around election time, they always pay a visit to temples. They are welcome to visit Madhya Pradesh, but they must do so before and after the elections. Taking temple support only during elections, in my opinion, is not a good idea "On Monday, he told reporters.

Mishra, who is also the minister in-charge of the Indore district, spoke to reporters on the sidelines of an event commemorating the state's formation day on November 1 in Indore. Specially-abled artists performed patriotic songs at the event. The state's Home Minister also recognised the healthcare workers who are helping to administer COVID-19 vaccines to those who are eligible.
