On Friday, Gandhi arrived in Kathmandu (Nepal) from New Delhi for the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra.
The Congress chief, on April 29, had announced at a rally that he wanted to undertake the pilgrimage.
Meanwhile, the BJP claimed that Rahul Gandhi wanted a ceremonial send off and asked the Chinese Ambassador to see him off.
"Rahul Gandhi wanted the Chinese Ambassador to see him off. The Ambassador had sought permission for it in writing to the Ministry of External Affairs so that the ceremonial lounge at the Indira Gandhi International Airport could be used for giving him a ceremonial see off in the presence of the Ambassador and other diplomats of that country," news agency IANS quoted BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra as saying.
The grand old party hit back saying the saffron party was insulting the abode of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati by such "cheap" political comments.
