Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday mentioned he has “killed Rahul Gandhi” and urged people to
read about Hinduism and Lord Shiva to understand what he was saying.
Striking a spiritual note, Gandhi responded to a reporter’s question regarding his ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra and said: “Rahul Gandhi aapke dimag mein hai, maine maar diya usko. Woh hai hi nahi… Mere mind mein hai hi nahi. Gaya woh…Gaya.” (Rahul Gandhi is in your head. I’ve killed him. He doesn’t exist in my thoughts. He is gone, gone.)
He defined that his assertion may be understood if one reads about Hinduism and Lord Shiva. “Jis vyakti ko aap dekh rahe ho woh Rahul Gandhi nahi hai. Woh aapko dikh raha hai. Baat nahi samjhe aap? Hindu dharm ko padho thoda, Shivji ko padho samjha aa jayegi baat.” (The individual you are seeing is not Rahul Gandhi. You can see him. Did you not understand? Read the Hindu religion, about Lord Shiva… you will understand.)
Urging the journalist to not be surprised, he said, “Don’t be surprised. Rahul Gandhi is in your mind, not mine. He is in BJP’s mind, not mine.”
Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress MP Shatrughan Sinha lauded Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra mentioned he has now emerged because the “frontrunner for the PM put up” in the opposition camp. “He has now become a frontrunner (for the PM post) in the opposition camp. Lakhs of people are coming out in his support. He has proved his leadership quality. People have accepted him as a leader,” Sinha advised PTI
Bharat Jodo Yatra
Gandhi made the assertion throughout a presser because the Bharat Jodo Yatra is passing via Haryana.
The foot march had entered Kurukshetra district from Karnal on Sunday with a massive variety of individuals becoming a member of the Yatra. During the Haryana leg of the Yatra, Gandhi has been accompanied by senior social gathering leaders, together with former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Kumari Selja, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Deepender Singh Hooda and Haryana Congress chief Udai Bhan.
On Sunday, former Army chief Gen Deepak Kapoor and lots of retired prime officers of the defence providers had joined the Yatra in Kurukshetra. While the BJP slammed the Yatra and mentioned Kapoor was indicted within the Adarsh rip-off together with different senior Army officers, Congress hit again and accused the saffron social gathering for “maligning our courageous hearts.”
The march covered over 130 km in its first leg in Haryana from December 21 to 23, passing through Nuh, Gurugram and Faridabad districts. It re-entered Haryana’s Panipat Thursday evening from Uttar Pradesh.
The march has so far covered Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
The 3500-kilometre Bharat Jodo Yatra, which started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7, will end after reaching Srinagar by January 30.
