New Delhi: Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot at a public meeting in Bhilwara on Monday was garlanded with lemons and chillies by workers of the National Students Union of India to ward off “evil eye” of the BJP.

Indian superstition holds hanging lemon and chilli among the most common totems to fight off evil spirits. It is seen in homes and establishments across the country.

Gehlot’s Bhilwara campaign saw the garlanding as a stand out scene which has since then caught the attention of the media. He was in Bhilwara to campaign for Congress leader Rampal Sharma contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha polls from the Bhilwara constituency on April 29.
