Rajsamand (Rajasthan): I have come here to seek Lord Krishna’s blessings on behalf of all the ministers in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, said Union Minister Smriti Irani on Saturday after offering prayers at the Shrinathji temple here.
“I came seeking Thakurji’s blessings before we start the work of rebuilding the country with compassion and harmony. I have come here on behalf of every one of us (ministers), seeking his blessings.
