I am not a ‘Hinduwadi’ leader, but a nationalist leader: Rahul Gandhi

Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who is on a temple-visiting spree in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, said that he does not require a certificate from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to visit temples. “If I feel like going to a temple and offering prayers to God then I will definitely visit it. I don’t need a certificate from the BJP. I am not a ‘Hinduwadi’ leader, but a nationalist leader. I am a leader of every religion, every caste, every language and every class,” Gandhi said on Tuesday.

The statement comes a day after the BJP launched a scathing attack on the Congress chief, saying he was engaged in “fancy dress Hinduism”. Gandhi retorted and said, “Are the country’s temples the sole property of the BJP and the RSS? Have only Modi and Shah got the contract to visit temples?”

Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day campaign run in Madhya Pradesh, interacted with journalists in Indore and said that when the prime minister and the BJP president visit temples wearing traditional attire, no one questions them but when Congress leaders do that they are accused of fancy dress Hinduism. Gandhi said, “When Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia and I wear clothes as per the temple’s tradition, it is said that we are exhibiting fancy dress Hinduism,” he said.
