Mirzapur: AICC general secretary Rahul
Gandhi today visited the famous Vindhyachal temple here and
later offered a `chadar` at Kantit Sharif, the dargah of
Hazrat Ismail Chisti.

Gandhi, who yesterday arrived in Varanasi unannounced and
later visited Chandauli before reaching Mirzapur last night,
went to the temple and dargah, party workers said.

After his visit to the holy places, the Congress leader
went to the house of Javed, a small-time gambler who died last
week after he jumped into river Ganga to dodge police, and
consoled his widow.

He then visited Hastinpur village in Chilh area and
interacted with villagers.
