Senior Congress leader Kamal Nath asked the Bharatiya Janata Party, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders to have a discourse on religion and spirituality with Rahul Gandhi, claiming it will prove he has more knowledge about these subjects than them. He challenged the fake narrative of BJP on the religious issues.
Throughout the yatra in MP, Rahul Gandhi visited the famous Lord Mahakal Temple in Ujjain and also offered prayers at the Omkareshwar Temple in Khandwa district. Asked about Gandhi focusing on religion and spirituality in his speeches during the foot march, Nath said, "I challenge the BJP, RSS and VHP leaders to have a discussion with Gandhi on the issues of religion and spirituality before media persons."
The proposed discussion will prove Gandhi has more knowledge about religion and spirituality than these persons, the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister claimed. He said the main aim of Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra is to save the Constitution and culture of the country.
Nath said even little girls gave their piggy banks to Gandhi on the occasion as there was a lot of enthusiasm among them. Gandhi himself said his yatra got a huge response in Madhya Pradesh, especially in Indore, Nath pointed out. During the yatra, Rahul Gandhi interacted with farmers, small industrialists, shop owners, women, differently-abled persons, weavers, tribals, Dalits, sanitation workers, among others, Kamal Nath said.
