Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday took BJP supporters by an unexpected surprise.
The Congress leader was in Indore for a roadshow and was moving towards the city from airport yesterday. Locals had gathered on the roadsides to catch her glimpse.
A group present there started chanting pro-Modi slogans as Gandhi’s cavalcade passed by.
Wearing a maroon saree and sporting a ’tilak’ on her forehead, the Congress leader stopped her cavalcade and stepped out of her black SUV when she heard BJP group shouting, “Modi, Modi” slogans.
To their surprise, Gandhi got her vehicle halted and stepped out. She smiled at them and stretched her hand towards them. “Aap apni jagah, main meri jagah..all the best,” she told them.
Priyanka won their hearts
The young BJP supporters, surprised at this unexpected act, wished Priyanka Gandhi all the best. One of them was even seen clicking her photo.
After being moved by this gracious move, the BJP supporter also replied “Very good”.
Flanked by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel, she started the roadshow from Raj Mohalla and was seen waving to the crowd who cheered and greeted her enroute as her caravan passed the crowded city streets.
In another heart-winning move, Gandhi, during an election rally at Ratlam, broke security protocol on Monday and met many enthusiastic supporters who were eager to take selfies with the leader.
The Congress general secretary was accompanied with Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel.
Earlier in the day, Priyanka also offered prayers at the famous Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain and held another road show in the city as she kicked off her campaign for the fourth and last phase of Lok Sabha polls in Madhya Pradesh. It was her maiden campaign in the state.
Polling for the Indore parliamentary constituency, which is considered to be a stronghold of the BJP since 1989, is scheduled to take place in the seventh phase of Lok Sabha elections on May 19.
