President offers prayers at Sufi shrine

Jaipur | November 17, 2005, from Webindia123.com


President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Thursday offered prayers at the shrine of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer.
On a daylong visit of Rajashan, Kalam also offered a "chadar" at the shrine, where he had come to seek blessings after filing nomination papers for the presidential election.

Earlier in the morning, Rajasthan Governor Pratibha Patil and Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje received the president at the Sanganer airport here.

After a few minutes stopover, he flew by a helicopter to Todgarh town where he interacted with school children who were happy to see the dignitary in their midst.

Kalam, who was given a traditional welcome by Todgarh citizens, talked to the children and asked them about facilities being provided to them at their school.

Rajasthan's medical and health minister Digamber Singh was also present on the occasion.

Kalam also met women of a local self-help group (SHG) and inspected a school building project, which was being taken up under "Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan" or universal education programme.
