Abohar. Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, visited the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir on Shahibagh Road in Ahmadabad to seek the blessings of Mahant Swami Maharaj, spiritual head of the organisation.

Afterwards, Amit Shah performed the pujan of Shri Harikrishna Maharaj and Mahant Swami Maharaj. Swamishri blessed Shah by applying a chandlo to his forehead.

Swamishri tied the nadachhadi to the wrist of Amit Shah, praying for the protection of all. The sadhus also recited special Mahamrutunjay Mantras as Swamishri showered him with sanctified rice grains and blessed him to lead the nation, saying, “May both you and our beloved Prime Minister Narendra Modi continue to unite our nation and its people to create a new India. May you attain the progress of 20 years in the next 5 years.”
