Rahul Gandhi fails to wish people on Rama Navami, his primary ally M K Stalin yet to wish New Year to Tamil people

On 13th March 2019, it was the auspicious day of Rama Navami, a festival that is widely celebrated throughout the country for Hindus. Rama Navami is a spring Hindu festival that celebrates the birthday of lord Rama. The festival is a part of the spring Navratri, and falls on the ninth day of the bright half (Shukla Paksha) in the Hindu calendar month of Chaitra.

Congress President Rahul Gadhi, who was called by Congress supporters an ardent Bhakt of Shiva and Rama, was defended by Senior Congress leader R S Surjewala as a ‘janeu dhari’ Hindu. He said, “Not only is Rahul Gandhi ji a Hindu, he is a ‘janeu dhari’ Hindu. So BJP should not bring down the political discourse to this level”

This sudden transformation of Rahul Gandhi was seen during the 2017 Gujarat Assembly Elections. The Congress President was seen visiting several Hindu temples during his campaign trail for Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi has wished the Nation on the auspicious day of Rama Navami, Rahul Gandhi has not yet wished Hindus of India. Several popular twitter handles have pointed out this hypocrisy from Rahul Gandhi.

PM Modi has wished the people of Tamil Nadu, Odisha and Punjab on their respective new years.

Rahul Gandhi is seen as a popular PM candidate from South India and for this reason, he has recently chosen to contest from a non-Hindu majority constituency, Wayanad. Unfortunately neither he nor his primary ally leader from Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), M K Stalin, have wished the people of Tamil Nadu on their new year. It is to be noted that M K Stalin was the first leader to propose Rahul Gandhi as the PM candidate for India.

DMK Leader M K Stalin who has been trying to project his party as a party for Hindus, have failed to wish people of Tamil Nadu on Rama Navami. It is to be noted the DMK was in favor of destroying the “Rama Sethu” for the Sethu Samudram Canal Project.
