Rahul Gandhi becomes 'shiv bhakt' when elections approach: Smriti Irani


Hyderabad, Dec 5 (PTI): Hitting out at the Congress, Union Minister Smriti Irani on Tuesday said Rahul Gandhi chants Lord Ram's name and becomes a Shiv devotee as and when elections approach.

Addressing an election rally at Ramagundam, she said, "How long you (Congress) are going to divide and mislead people in the name of religion? I am saying this because the constituency's name is Ramagundamand every child in Ramagundam is identified with Ram. When the Congress party was in power they filed an affidavit in court and said there was no existence of Lord Ram. Now as and when the elections come, Rahul Gandhi not only chants Lord Ram's name but also becomes a Shiv Bhakt," Irani said.

Saying that the Modi government at the centre was committed to the development of Telangana, the union textiles minister alleged that the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi had "failed" to take the central schemes to people at the grassroot level.

At another election rally in Nizamabad, she said if voted to power, the Bharatiya Janata Party would provide bicycles free of cost to girl students from class VII to X, besides scooter at 50 per cent subsidy to young ladies pursuing higher studies.

Highlighting the promises made in the BJP manifesto for the December 7 assembly elections in Telangana, she said her party would waive farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh.

She claimed that as many as 20 lakh families in Telangana were given free gas connections under the Ujjwala Yojana scheme and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government had sanctioned over two lakh houses to the state.

"The central government has also connected 44 agricultural markets under eNAM (National Agricultural Market) scheme for the benefit of farmers for better price and better market conditions. Each and every BJP party worker can proudly say in these 44 markets, farmers of Telangana were able to sell 7.5 lakh tonnes agricultural goods worth Rs 30,000 crore," she said.

The minister also said a notification for filling two lakh job vacancies in the state government would be issued within three months if the BJP was voted to power.

According to Irani, the Modi government has increased working days under the rural employment scheme, MGNREGA to 150 days from the earlier 100 days and also funds to the extent of Rs 55,000 crore was given.

    BJP Politicians are after Gandhi family or Congress party attacking at all unethical & illegal ways!!! Why don't the BJP politicians speak on development like basic shelter, roads, schools, hospitals, healthcare and all essential amenities required for the common man, jobs and good educational institutions ??????
    BJP politicians are always after discussing Caste, Hindus, Ram Temple, Muslims, cow slaughter, lynching etc etc. People of INDIA badly required the above mentioned facilities... Industrialists loan in Million Crores have been cancelled but POOR FARMERS 50,000/- or One lakh loan has been forcibly taken back or their land has been forcibly taken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what BJP doing???
    BJP GOVT. BHAGAVO AUR CONGRESS HUKUMAT LAVOO... JAI HO CONGRESS.

    I dont understand this.
    In the Gujarat election, Rahul Gandhi became a "Janeudhari Hindu" (Brahmin) and for the Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan Vidhan Sabha elections, he would become an "ananay Shiv bhakt". His party promised to create a new spiritual/religious department in Madhya Pradesh, construct a Ram vangaman path, build gaushalas (cow sheds) in every district, find a great deal of virtue in gaumutra (cow urine) and make lofty promises to commercialise it. Digvijaya Singh would tweet a recorded entry of Motilal Nehru in a register kept by a priest in Pushkar to claim that Rahul Gandhi is in fact a Kashmiri Brahmin.
    why nothing for us?

    Your activities and active duty bound life is clearly visible from your bloated figure. At least make some time and maintain your personality. Government pays not to add 100's of kilos and criticize others with your irrational thoughts and loose tongue.

    The Congress themselves have called its leader a janeu-dhari Hindu. If he is a janeu-dhari Hindu, there is a huge section that is outside the Varna system. What will happen to them? You show me the difference between the BJP and yourself. If you are trying to ape BJP, follow them, you are trying to become a mirror image of (PM Narendra) Modi, then what is the choice people have?

    Most of the boasting ministers during election time instead of assessing what they have done they try to dig others faults and even up to the level testing patience of Super Powers of God. Dirty Politics!

    You politically motivated BJP ministers and blind Bhakt's, first cleans your dirty hearts and vicious thoughts about others intentions towards his faith & belief towards Lord Shiv. Are you worthy of criticizing others when you yourself dwell in unholy way of life? For your deeds in this world you will have to answer on the judgement day and do not poke your dirty nose in others affairs. People get sick of you filthy creatures. Life is not only politics there are other aspect called humanity maintain those values first. Your profession is actining and there is no reality in your way of living. Meant for acting.
