Asaduddin Owaisi slams PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi over temple visits

Rahul Gandhi's India

Hours after Asaduddin Owaisi took a dig at Congress President Rahul Gandhi's temple visit, the party on 23 December said that the AIMIM president makes statements just to grab attention.

Rahul was accorded a warm welcome by the Congress workers as he reached the temple who garlanded him.

The CWC also expressed deep concern over Modi's allegations against Manmohan Singh during the Gujarat elections.

The officers had been tracking the woman for almost two hours when they finally cornered her on the porch of the boy's home. One of their bullets, however, pierced through the trailer wall and hit the boy, identified as Kameron Prescott .

During Rahul's last visit to Somnath Temple on November 29, a controversy erupted after his name along with senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel was allegedly mentioned as non-Hindus in the visitor book of the temple. The newly-elected Congress president said he is confident that his party will form next government in the state.

BJP national spokesperson G.V.L. Narasimha Rao hit back saying, "Rahul Gandhi, is this the low level of political discourse that you are capable of?" Any other image being circulated is fabricated.

On December 12, Prime Minister Modi and Rahul Gandhi visited temples in Gujarat with the twin objective of seeking blessings and wooing voters.

Earlier, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) too had targeted the Congress president over his temple visits in Gujarat and termed it an election gimmick to garner Hindu votes.

Post elections, the Gujarat Congress organised a three-day conclave, to be concluded on Saturday, to discuss the results and other issues, media reported.

Later in the day, Rahul is slated to meet the participants of the shivir in Ahmedabad.
