Priyanka Gandhi shakes hands with Modi supporters

ANI 

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra shook hands with BJP supporters chanting pro-Modi slogans, taking them by surprise on her way to a rally in Indore.

"Aap apni jagah aur mai apni jagah (You are where you are and I am where I am). All the best," she told them after getting out of her black SUV on Monday.

Clad in a red saree, the Congress leader earlier climbed over a wooden barricade to wade her way into the crowd after ending her address at a rally in Ratlam Lok Sabha constituency.

Her Special Protection Group (SPG) guards then swung into action to make way for her. She hugged and shook hands with supporters and clicked selfies with some of them.

This is not the first time that Priyanka Gandhi has shown amiability towards those gathered for her roadshows and election meetings.

After casting her vote on May 12 in Delhi, she waded through the crowd to take the blessing of an elderly woman sitting across the road on a cot. Breaking the security protocol, she had also posed for a picture with two young women who displayed their inked fingers.

She has stopped her cavalcade numerous times in the past to greet supporters.

At a rally in Assam last month, she had posed for a selfie.

On March 29, the Congress leader turned good Samaritan and helped a worker who was got hurt while presenting a framed portrait of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to her. The glass in the frame broke injuring Vishal.

On seeing him bleed, Priyanka Gandhi, who is also in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, a put a bandage on the wound.

She also asked the ambulance accompanying her convoy to take him for medical help.

The last phase of the Lok Sabha election will be held on May 19. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
