Mauritius prime minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth was on a day-long visit to Kangra district on Wednesday.

He arrived from Delhi at Gaggal airport near Dharamshala in the morning where he was received by Kangra deputy commissioner Rakesh Kumar Prajapati.

He paid obeisance at Baglamukhi temple near Dehra and was also scheduled to visit Mahakal temple in Baijnath but returned from Baglamukhi itself.

He was accompanied by his wife Kobita Ramdanee.

At Baglamukhi, Jugnauth was received by temple trust chairman Mahant Rajat Giri.

Giri said that Jugnauth’s wife had come to the temple in September and vowed to visit again if her husband is elected PM.

“The couple performed three ‘yagnas’ mainly for victory over enemies and protection of the country,” said Giri.

He said that Jugnauth also wanted to visit Mahakal temple for the “jalabhishek” of the Shivlingam. “However, they cancelled the visit and performed the puja at the Shiva temple at Baglamukhi temple complex itself,” Giri said.
