By visiting temples and wearing Janeu, Rahul Gandhi has proved Pandit Nehru wrong, claimed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Speaking to India TV Editor-in-Chief Rajat Sharma in Aap ki Adalat, the BJP leader said that Rahul's temple visits were a victory of his party's ideology.
"Pandit Nehru's fourth generation Rahul once used to say, he was an 'Accidental Hindu'. Now he is a 'Janeudhari Hindu'. This is a victory for our ideology. Rahul has now realized that if he has to live in Hindustan, he will have to show his 'janeu' and 'tilak' in public. To me, Rahul has proved that Nehru was wrong," he said at the show broadcast on Saturday night.
On Congress president Rahul Gandhi's 'chowkidar chor hai' remark, the UP CM said that Rahul Gandhi seems to lack understanding of ground realities 'when he hurls accusations on PM Modi'.
"During UPA, they siphoned money on ground, on water, in air, in space and from deep under the earth. Those who are pointing fingers at Modi Ji, have corruption in their family history and DNA. They want to divert people's attention from development," he alleged, adding that he would like to compete against the Congress chief in Gorakhpur.
"I would like Rahul Gandhi to contest from Gorakhpur. We are ready for the challenge," the UP CM said.
