Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, for the second straight day, visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar and offered 'Sewa' at the Shoe Stand. In the pictures shared by Congress, Rahul can be seen arranging shoes at the counter and handing over the shoes to the devotees.
Earlier in the day, Rahul offered his 'Sewa' at Golden Temple’s community kitchen, known as Langar. On Monday too, the Congress offered 'Sewa' after paying obeisance at the Golden Temple, the most revered Sikh place of worship.
As part of the services, he could be seen washing dishes and other utensils at the Golden Temple. The Congress's Punjab president Raja Waring had on Monday said Rahul Gandhi was on a personal, spiritual visit. "Rahul Gandhi-ji is coming to Amritsar Sahib to pay obeisance at Sachkhand Shri Harmandir Sahib. This is his personal, spiritual visit, let’s respect his privacy. Request all party workers to not be physically present for this visit. You all can show your support in spirit and meet him the next time," the Congress's Punjab president posted on X.
Senior Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa said the former Congress president was on a personal spiritual visit to the Golden Temple. "Congress MP @RahulGandhi is on a personal spiritual visit. He paid obeisance at Darbar Sahib #GoldenTemple Amritsar. The country has been going through a very tumultuous period. The kind of violence that happened in the BJP-ruled state, #Manipur has stunned the entire world. Communal clashes also took place in Haryana, another BJP-ruled state. The Congress Party always wishes for a better future for the country. Therefore, apart from making other efforts, it also seeks the kindness of God," he posted on X.
The visit to Punjab is also seen as an outreach effort ahead of the crucial Lok Sabha polls. The Congress lost power to the Aam Aadmi Party in the state in 2022. (ANI)
