The 61-year-old ‘sanyasin’ also took the opportunity to wish good rainfall this monsoon and good harvesting by farmers of Madhya Pradesh.
The picture has incidentally stirred a flutter in BJP circle here amid growing speculations that she was trying to stage a comeback to MP politics by taking active role in the upcoming by-elections to the 27 assembly constituencies in the state, scheduled to be held by end of September this year.
In fact, Ms Bharti has of late been found touring MP very frequently giving rise to the speculation on her growing ambition to return to MP politics.
Besides, she has also been found to be engaging her in political activities in Bhopal in the last eight months.
Ms Bharti who led BJP to power in MP in 2003 assembly elections, had left MP politics after she resigned as chief minister of the state in2004.
She had represented Jhansi Lok Sabha constituencies in 2014 polls, but she decided not to contest the last LS polls.
