“We performed two yagnas for the victory of Trump. The rituals were performed at the behest of NRIs in the US,” Vishnudham temple trustee Ramesh Joshi told PTI.

The temple, located in north Mumbai suburb Kandivli, conducted the three-hour-long rituals, Joshi said.

“Some NRIs in the US are regular visitors to the temple when they visit India. They asked us to perform the yagnas. Accordingly, two yagnas were performed. The Vijay Prapti Yagna was to ensure victory for Trump and the Shasan Prapti Yagna was to help him govern the US,” Joshi said.
