Congress president Rahul Gandhi started his campaign in the poll-bound state of Rajasthan by offering prayers at the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisty and at Brahma Temple on Monday.

First Gandhi visited the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer. He was accompanied by Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot and former chief minister Ashok Gehlot during the visit to 13th-century dargah.

According to news agency PTI, Gandhi family's traditional khadim (cleric) made him perform 'ziyarat' at the dargah.

After visiting the dargah, the Congress chief offered prayers at the Jagatpita Brahma temple in Pushkar.

Congress party took to their Twitter account to share the video of the same.

After the visits to the dargah and the temple, the Gandhi scion will address a public meeting in Pokhran and Jalore. A public meeting is also scheduled to be held in Jodhpur.

The Congress is eyeing a comeback in poll-Rajasthan, which is currently being ruled by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
