Congress President Rahul Gandhi hit the temple trail for the second day of his election campaign in Karnataka today. He stopped in the heart of Kanakagiri in Koppal district and visited Kanakachala Laxmi-Narasimha temple to pay obeisance to the dieties. The temple, built by a local chieftain, has a history of 500 years of existence. After spending 15 minutes there, Gandhi boarded the bus and hit the campaign trail again. As the bus passed by several villages, he waved at the waiting people. After launching the party’s campaign at Ballari yesterday, Gandhi had visited Goddess Huligamma temple in Koppal district, a famous temple in the region. He also had visited Gavi Siddheshwara Mutt in Koppal, a mutt of the majority Lingayat community. On the third day of his four-day visit tomorrow, Gandhi would visit Khwaja Bande Nawaz Dargah in Kalaburagi district. The Karnataka BJP has mocked at Gandhi’s temple visits, calling him an “election Hindu.”
(More details are awaited.)
