New Delhi, Dec.14 (ANI): In a fresh salvo at BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) stopped him from entering a temple in Assam by using women as a blockade.
“I had gone to Assam and I wanted to visit a temple in Barpeta. At the temple, the RSS people stopped me from entering. They had the women standing at the entrance and said that I cannot enter,” Rahul Gandhi told media.
“This is the way BJP operates. Who are they to stop me from entering the temple?” he said.
Rahul Gandhi asserted that the recent incidents of stopping the Kerala Chief Minister from going to the function, stopping him (Rahul Gandhi) from entering a temple and beating the dalits in Punjab, only show the thinking of Prime Minister Modi.
“In Kerala, they stop our Chief Minister from going to the function. In Assam they stop me from entering into a temple and in Punjab, they beat the Dalits. This is the way Narendra Modi ji thinks. We are not going to accept this. They (BJP) need to change their way of functioning,” he said.
In his two-day visit to Assam, the Congress vice-president had addressed a rally in Barpeta District after a seven kilometre ‘padhyatra’ that began from a temple and ended at a mosque.
Hitting at Prime Minister Modi, Rahul Gandhi had said that people of Assam will reject the BJP like Bihar as the Prime Minister did not fulfill his Lok Sabha promises. (ANI)
