Mumbai: Congress today objected to the presence of a galaxy of religious and spiritual leaders at the swearing-in ceremony of the Devendra Fadnavis ministry here.



"This was a government function but sadhus, saints, buwa-baba and maharajs (godmen) were present in a large number," former Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said, speaking to reporters after the event at the Wankhede Stadium here.



"Is this not superstition?" asked the senior Congress leader, adding, "There were allegations that I encouraged superstition when Sathya Sai Baba visited the Varsha bungalow when I was the Chief Minister".
