GUWAHATI, Dec 27 - Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday offered prayers at Kamakhya temple atop the Nilachal hills here, on the last day of his three-day visit to the Northeast, before leaving for Manipur, where he later inaugurated several projects, a senior official said. Shah arrived at the temple from the PWD inspection bungalow at Amingaon here around 10 am, accompanied by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, the official said.
The Union Home Minister, however, entered the sanctum sanctorum of the temple with just three dolois or priests, as Sonowal and Sarma waited near its gate. He also undertook a parikrama (circumambulation) around the shrine, the senior official added.
The top BJP leader, who landed here on Friday night, launched four development projects the day after at an official function. � PTI
