The Urs festival is an annual festival held at Ajmer which commemorates the death anniversary of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. It is held over six days and features night-long qawwali and various religious ceremonies. Thousands of pilgrims visit the shrine from all over India and abroad during the Urs.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had handed over the 'chadar' to Mr Naqvi on Saturday to be offered at the shrine. Huge crowds had gathered at the dargah premises to see the 'chadar' being offered. Elaborate security arrangements have been made at the dargah.
Two dozen LCD screens were installed in and around the dargah where PM Modi's video message was aired, according to IANS reports.
