‘Rahul Baba on Bharat Jodo Yatra Wearing Foreign T-shirt’: Amit Shah Asks Cong Leader to ‘Read India’s History First’

Published on

As the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) steps up attacks on Rahul Gandhi as he leads Congress’ ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday hit out at the former Congress chief, saying he had once said India is not a nation and is now out to “unite” the country wearing a “foreign-make” T-shirt. The BJP claimed that the Congress leader was wearing a designer T-shirt priced over Rs 40,000 during the ongoing ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.

Addressing BJP booth level workers in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur, Shah also said that the Wayanad MP needs to study the country’s history first.

“I want to remind Rahul baba and Congressmen about his speech given in Parliament. Rahul Baba had said India is not a nation at all. Rahul Baba, in which book have you read this? This is the nation for which lakhs and lakhs of people have sacrificed their lives. Rahul Gandhi has gone to connect Bharat, but I think that he needs study Indian history,” Shah said.

The Home Minister claimed that the Congress cannot work for development and “it can only work for appeasement and vote bank politics”.

Earlier, the BJP slammed the Congress leader over a video that is now viral on social media that captures a conversation between George Ponniah – a pastor in Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari and Rahul Gandhi. In the video the pastor is seen terming Jesus the ‘only real god’.

Several BJP leaders including the spokesperson of the Party, Shehzad Poonawalla shared the clip where is the pastor is seen answering Rahul Gandhi’s questions about who Jesus was. The Pastor says, “Jesus is the real god who revels himself in the human form unlike other Shakti or powers.”

Congress spokesperson Jairam Ramesh responded to the allegations made by BJP and said, “Its a completely bogus video. This is all just BJP Propaganda. We are doing Bharat Jodo Yatra. BJP is busy dividing while Congress Unites. BJP Rejects India’s diversity while congress unites India.”

During ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, 52-year-old Rahul Gandhi will walk from Kanyakumari to Kashmir over the course of 150 days. This is one of the party’s massive community outreach programs in recent decades. The 3,500 km long padyatra will pass through 12 States and two Union Territories including Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir in about five months.
