Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot, party’s Uttar Pradesh unit chief Raj Babbar and film actress Nagma along with thousands of party workers on Saturday held a roadshow in support of party candidate Raghu Sharma on the last day campaigning for the Ajmer Lok Shaba by-polls.

Pilot, Babbar and Nagma, got down when their cavalcade reached Ajmer dargah and paid homage to Khwaza Moinuddin Hassan Chisty and prayed for the party’s victory.

The cavalcade was greeted by people, including women and children who thronged rooftops to cheer the Congress leaders and shower flowers.

Party workers in caps with party symbol and party scarf were greeted by a musical band.

The road show begun from Foy Sagar neighbourhood of the city and ended near the Mayo College traversing through city neighbourhoods, including Ganj, Dargah Bazaar, Madar Gate, Padav and station road.

Asked about the expenses for the show, Congress spokesperson Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said: “People have come out on their own for a change.”

“The response to the Congress’ road show was unprecedented as people came out in large numbers to bless the party,” he said.

A clash between the supporters of the Congress and the BJP was averted near the Delhi gate neighbourhood of the city where workers of the two rival parties came face to face, minutes before the Congress roadshow was to pass from the spot but police managed to convince the BJP workers to take another route.
