Senior Congress leader Sam Pitroda’s question on Ram Temple has irked the Bharatiya Janata Party as he accused the Congress leader and his party of indulging in ‘appeasement politics’.

Reacting to Pitroda’s comments where he had said, Ram Temple is not the real issue troubling the country, BJP MP Rajeev Chandrashekhar said Pitroda’s comments reflect the mindset of the Congress and Rahul Gandhi.

“Sam Pitroda is a prime example of how far away Rahul’s Congress is from the psyche of India. During the UPA, Sam was a very powerful man and he was heading the Prime Minister’s Innovation Council… The 2G scam happened then There was, and he was silent about that. On inflation and other economic issues he said ‘what if there is some inflation’,” Hindustan Times It was said quoting Chandrashekhar.

“This is Sam Pitroda who is Rahul Gandhi’s guru. A lot of this represents Rahul Gandhi’s thinking that Hindutva doesn’t matter. Terrorism doesn’t matter because of appeasement. Inflation and corruption don’t matter because of crony capitalism. He said, “Hindu faith does not matter because of their appeasement politics.”

According to the information, the consecration ceremony of Ram temple in Ayodhya is going to be held on January 22 and many BJP stalwarts including Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in this program.

What did Pitroda say?

talking to news agency YearPitoda said that BJP should keep religion separate from politics.

“I have no problem with any religion. It is okay to go to the temple occasionally, but you cannot make it the main platform. 40 per cent people vote for BJP and 60 per cent people do not.” Vote for BJP. He is everyone’s Prime Minister, not the Prime Minister of any party and this is the message the people of India want from him. Talk about employment, inflation, science and technology and challenges. They (people) have to decide what are the real issues – is Ram Mandir the real issue? Or is unemployment the real issue? Is Ram temple the real issue or is inflation the real issue?” he told ANI.

“Practice your religion but keep religion separate from politics,” he said.

Port on EVM:

Speaking on EVMs, Pitoda urged Congress and India Bloc members to take electronic voting machines (EVMs) ‘seriously’, citing that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections will decide the ‘destiny of the country’.

“I would request my party and alliance members to take this matter very seriously. This is not a simple issue. Do not ignore it because the 2024 elections will decide the destiny of the country. It will decide which path India will take. Used to be.” He said, “I see that democracy has become weak today. The PM of a country does not hold a press conference for 10 years, it troubles me. The Prime Minister is spending more time in the temple, it troubles me. “

On PM’s face:

On the PM face of India Block, the senior Congress leader said that the election should not be fought on any face or personality, but on an idea.

“Elections should be fought on an idea. Who will protect the Constitution? Who will grow your democracy? Who will provide jobs, your health care and infrastructure? This is not a presidential election. This is a parliamentary election. So you have a face. But there should be an idea. The idea is that we want democracy, we want inclusion, we want diversity. These are the issues. It is Modi versus nobody. There are many capable people in the India alliance. Some are visible, Some are not visible,” Pitroda said.
