The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, has again taken a shot at the Congress party president, Rahul Gandhi, on his repeated failed attempt to appease Hindus by visiting temples. In a fresh attack on Gandhi on Monday, Adityanath said that Gandhi cannot even differentiate between a temple and a mosque even after so many of his visits to several temples in the nation. He said that despite several visits to several temples, the Congress chief had to be reminded by a priest of a temple that he has come to a temple and not a mosque. “In a temple, you need to sit by crossing your legs. One should not sit as if he were performing ‘namaz’ inside a temple. No matter how much he tries to defend himself by claiming that he wears the sacred thread, he has failed and the truth is out in front of everyone,” said Adityanath through an election rally in Madhya Pradesh on Monday, quoted ANI.
The UP stalwart, Adityanath, is on an intensive ambition in the poll-bound Madhya Pradesh and is leaving no stone unturned in highlighting BJP’s work and criticising Gandhi as well as Congress party for their failure to run the country for generations. The Madhya Pradesh state currently is ruled by Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government and Congress party is in opposition. Adityanath’s comments have come just a day after PM Narendra Modi took a jibe at Congress party’s menifesto for Madhya Pradesh. “You bring cow in your manifesto in MP. I don’t criticize you for doing it. I don’t think it’s wrong. It’s their right but the question is are the Congress units in MP and Kerala different? Don’t both come under the same naamdar who sits in Delhi? The Congress is controlled by the same family,” PM Modi was quoted saying in the rally in Chhindwara by ANI.
