Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath offered prayers at the famous Hanuman Setu temple here on Tuesday, a day after the Election Commission barred him from electioneering for 72 hours for likening the ongoing Lok Sabha polls to a contest between ‘Ali’ and ‘Bajrang Bali.’ The Chief Minister spent about 25 minutes at the temple and was seen bowing before the deity and sitting with folded hands to recite “Hanuman Chalisa.” He refused to take questions from the mediapersons, following the poll panel’s gag order.
