The BJP on Wednesday hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi after his remarks calling the saffron party and the RSS a “fake Hindu”. The BJP accused the Congress leader of being “disconnected from the ground”, saying he uses religion to his advantage. Addressing the foundation day of All India Mahila Congress here, Gandhi said that the ideology of Congress is completely opposite to that of BJP-RSS and only one of the two ideologies can rule the country.
BJP national general secretary Arun Singh targeted Gandhi and said that no one takes him (Rahul Gandhi) seriously. He told reporters, ‘Rahul Gandhi should not make this statement. He is completely cut off from the ground. They have no idea, that is the main problem.’ Responding to Gandhi’s sarcasm on the RSS over respect for women, Singh said if the Congress leader has any confusion on this, he should visit the ground. “No one takes him seriously. He is not a serious person.
‘Hindu sentiments were hurt by Gandhi’s statement’
Singh further referred to Rahul Gandhi’s speech and said, “Look at Rahul Gandhi’s track record. Sometimes he speaks by reading papers, sometimes by copying two or three lines, he does not know what is happening on the ground. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Gandhi’s statement has hurt Hindu sentiments. Rahul Gandhi hurt Hindu religious sentiments in his address. Lakshmi, Durga, Saraswati are the centers of emotions of crores of people. To say that Durga ji has been attacked, using such words is not correct in the context of any religion. He tweeted that the words have no effect on the gods. But yes, if one’s power is due to the ignorance of his son. If the reason is less, then it is Sonia’s mother.
In fact, referring to demonetisation and GST, Rahul Gandhi had said that the Narendra Modi government has attacked ‘Lakshmi ki Shakti’ and ‘Durga ki Shakti’. “They (RSS and BJP) call themselves Hindu party and attack Lakshmi ji and Maa Durga. Then they say that they are Hindus. These people are false Hindus. These people are not Hindus. They use Hinduism. “Rahul, connecting Lakshmi and Durga with today’s politics, said – the job of a politician is to bring the powers of Durga (protection) and Lakshmi (goal) to every person.
