Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said India is a country of Hindus and not Hindutvavadis, who want to be in power in any condition. He said, “Hindutvavadis want nothing but power” and they can go to any extent to achieve it. “Hindutvavadis spend their entire life in search of power. They want nothing but power and can do anything for it. They follow the path of ‘Sattagrah’, not ‘Satyagrah’. This country is of Hindus, not of Hindutvavadis,”
Rahul Gandhi was in Jaipur for a rally against inflation in the country, which the Congress has termed as a “decisive fight” against the central government. Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot were also present at the ‘Mehengai Hatao Maharally’.
‘Hindu’ and ‘Hindutvavadi’. The two words have different meanings. I am Hindu but not Hindutvavadi… Mahatma Gandhi was a Hindu but Godse was Hindutavadi,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Rahul Gandhi, along with Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on Sunday attended the national-level party rally in Jaipur against rising inflation. Congress leaders from various parts of Rajasthan have already arrived in Jaipur to take part in the rally, which will be held at Vidhyadhar Nagar stadium.
