Bhopal, India: Viral as ‘the woman in blue’, bank officer Yogeshwari Gohite is stunned by how much attention she is getting for her polling-day pictures. Overwhelmed by the tide of friends requests, she is thinking of hiding her social media accounts.
Gohite, who is with Canara Bank, was deputed as polling officer 1 at the ITI polling station in Govindpura, Bhopal, on Sunday. Within moments of her arrival, news photographers zoomed in on her, reports the indiatimes.com.
In the heat and dust of election, she stood out in a blue gown and blue shades, a trendy bag in one hand and a ballot unit in another. Simple and unhindered, she smiled for the cameras. The Net results were stunning.
By afternoon, her photos had gone viral. On a day that Bhopal was voting, BJP’s Pragya Thakur and Congress’s Digvijaya Singh weren’t the only ones making headlines.
