Congress leader Randeep Surjewala on Sunday said the people of the country were fed up of the “political rhetoric” of Bharatiya Janata Party leaders and it would not work any more.
“There is a difference between jimmewari (responsibilty) and jumlebazi (rhetoric). Only bhashan (speeches), but no shasan (governance) won’t work anymore,” Surjewala said here at a conclave of India TV.
He said Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had changed himself and no one should have any problem if he goes to temples.
“Worshiping religion and visiting temples is everyone’s right. If Rahul Gandhi or any other leader visits temples, what is the problem? Temples or God cannot belong to anyone. Rahul Gandhi has strong beliefs in temples and God and he does not differentiate between different religions,” he said.
Surjewala came down heavily on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath for his jibe that the Congress loses wherever Rahul Gandhi goes for campaigning.
“Yogiji is a Chief Minister in whose constituency deaths of around 60 children have taken place. Under his leadership, no community is safe. So, before targetting someone, he should see his own faults,” the Congress leader said.
Adityanath attacked the Congress Vice President while campaigning in Valsad in Gujarat as part of the BJP’s ‘Gaurav Yatra’.
