Congress leader Rahul Gandhi pays obeisance at Mata Khirbhawani temple Ganderbal

Srinagar: Congress leader and Member Parliament (MP) Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday paid obeisance at Mata Khirbhawani temple in Ganderbal.
Gandhi reached the shrine this morning and paid obeisance at one of the holiest shrines of the Kashmiri Pandit (KP) community in the valley devoted to a Hindu Goddess Ragnya Devi.
Former Congress leader spent some time in the shrine, where spring changes colours as per the situation. A large number of security forces were deployed in and outside the temple as a precautionary measure to prevent any law and order problem.
