Indore, India: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was campaigning in Madhya Pradesh on Monday, stopped her convoy while driving from the airport to greet supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, taking them by surprise.
Gandhi’s convoy was passing through a busy road when a group of people standing by the road, including young boys, shouted ‘Modi, Modi’.
Suddenly, Priyanka Gandhi stopped her convoy, stepped out of her black Tata Safari SUV and walked up to the BJP supporters. She was followed by her security personnel, the Special Protection Group.
She shook hands with them and said, ‘Aap apni jagah aur mai apni jagah (You are where you are and I am where I am). All the best.’
The young BJP supporters, surprised at this unexpected act, wished Priyanka Gandhi all the best. One of them was even seen clicking her photo, reports the ndtv.com.
The Congress leader then kicked off her road show in Indore. She was accompanied by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel.
The Congress leader, earlier in the day, was also seen jumping a wooden fencing and plunging into a sea of people after a public rally in Ratlam.
At the Nehru Stadium in Ratlam, Priyanka Gandhi, one of the most protected leaders in India, was seen approaching the audience after her speech in support of Congress candidate Kantilal Bhuria.
Priyanka Gandhi, 47, joined politics in January but has been a crowd-puller for years when campaigned for her mother Sonia Gandhi and brother Rahul Gandhi.
Eight seats in Madhya Pradesh will vote in the seventh and last phase of the national election. In December, the Congress took power in the state, ending the BJP’s 15-year rule.
