Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday handed over a Chaadar to be offered at the dargah of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer dargah for the ongoing 'Urs'.

The Prime Minister gave the chaadar to Minister of State, PMO Prithviraj Chavan.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday also had handed over a chaadar as an offering for the ongoing 'Urs' at Ajmer Sharif dargah to a delegation here.

It has been an old practice by successive Congress Presidents to send a chaadar, woven in Hyderabad, to Ajmer Sharif on the occasion of 'Urs', which is taken to the shrine by senior Congress leaders and ministers.
