The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath Nath slammed the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. Yogi on Monday said that the Congress VP doesn’t even know the proper manner of sitting in a temple. Speaking at a conclave organised by a news channel, the chief minister said that Mr Rahul’s visits to various temples in Gujarat were fake. “Uss bechare ko to mandir mein baithana bhi nahin aata (He doesn’t even know how to sit in a temple). When he visited the Kashi Vishwanath temple during Assembly elections, he sat as though he was offering namaaz.
The priest had to tell him the correct posture of sitting in a temple”, he said. He said that the UPA government had filed an affidavit in Supreme Court claiming that Lord Rama and Lord Krishna were imaginary entities.
“If they are imaginary then what is Rahul Gandhi doing in temples?” he asked. Mr Yogi said that Mr Rahul’s elevation as Congress president would work as a catalyst for “Congress mukt Bharat”. “The Congress is finally fulfilling the dream of Mahatma Gandhi who wanted the Congress to cease to exist,” he added.
Rahul Gandhi has been visiting a lot of Hindu temples during the election campaigns in Gujarat. A move which many considered to be an attempt of Congress to remove the Anti-Hindu image imposed on them by opposition in last few years.
