Bharat Jodo Yatra Rahul Gandhi: Former Congress President and MP from Wayanad, Rahul Gandhi has gone on a ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ these days. His journey of 150 days has started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, the last city of India in the south. This visit of the Congress MP is now in controversy. Actually, today i.e. on Saturday 10th September, Rahul Gandhi met Catholic priest George Ponnaiah. The video of this meeting is becoming increasingly viral on social media. The reason for this is that the Tamil priest has a long history of controversies.
Ponnaiya has been accused of making provocative statements against Hindus. Not only this, he has also visited the lock-up due to derogatory remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. He was arrested by the police from Madurai in July last year. Rahul Gandhi met George Ponnaiah at the church.
Why is there a ruckus about the viral video
In this video Congress MP Rahul Gandhi is seen asking the priest whether Jesus Christ is a form of God. Is this right ? On this George Ponnaiya says that Jesus Christ is the real God. He further says that God has revealed himself in the form of a human being. A real human being… not like a force… so we see his personality as a human.
BJP attacked Rahul
BJP has attacked Rahul Gandhi for meeting the controversial priest and video clip insulting Hindu gods and goddesses. BJP spokesperson Shahzad Poonawalla has targeted Rahul Gandhi by tweeting. He said, this is Rahul Gandhi’s hate campaign. Today they have made a person like George Ponnaiah the poster boy of Bharat Jodo Yatra, who challenged Hindus, threatened and said inappropriate things about Bharat Mata. The Congress has a long history of being anti-Hindu.
Congress defends Rahul Gandhi
At the same time, Congress has come to the fray to defend its leader. Congress’s media in-charge and former Union Minister Jairam Naresh hit back at BJP and said, BJP’s Hate Factory is trying to make a cheap tweet viral. It has nothing to do with what is recorded in the audio. This is the typical frivolous way of BJP. They are disappointed to see the successful start of Bharat Jodo Yatra and the support they are getting from the people.
