Two Uttar Pradesh sisters have set up a mini shrine in their home to "worship" Priyanka (pictured) and Rahul Gandhi and pray for their electoral win. Barabanki's Tripathi sisters want "Rahul Gandhi to be our next Prime Minister" and his sister Priyanka to "help him just like Lord Krishna helped Arjuna in the battle of the Mahabharata”. The pictures of the two Congress leaders appear alongside images of other Hindu gods and goddesses in their shrine. This isn't Priyanka's first godly elevation. Congress supporters in Prayagraj had put up posters in which she was seen as an avatar of Durga.
