Congress president Rahul Gandhi won the hearts of tribals at Devadurga by relishing their local delicacies of mirchi bhajji and manadaki (puffed rice). He also won over the Muslims in the area when he stopped his speech for around five minutes on hearing the prayer call of muezzin. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016, during an election rally in West Bengal's Kharagpur, had stopped his speech for over five minutes when he heard the sound of azan.
