Rahul’s campaign in Karnataka

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

DURING the assembly elections Congress President Rahul Gandhi went campaigning, as a Hindu religious leader. He prayed in temples. He claimed he was a "shiv bakht".

It is likely he will continue as "shiv bakht" in Karnataka during elections which are due this year. But there are people who claim Rahul is not a Hindu leader. A newspaper in the US says he was of Catholic origin. Rahul Gandhi it was said, was brought up as a Catholic by her mother. He has not been wanting to be known as a believer of any particular religion.

In Karnataka, people are fanatic about their religion. At the beginning of the century, people  belonging to "lower" classes were not allowed to go into temples. Only the brahmins were allowed to go into sanctum sanctorum. The brahmin would be wearing a ‘janaeu’, a sacred thread round the neck and chest. Is Rahul Gandhi wearing a ‘janaeu’?

In his poll campaigning, Rahul Gandhi better be wearing a ‘janaeu’ so he has a smooth entry and passage in the temples. The Congress is ruling in Karnataka and with Siddaramaiah there as the CM, things may not be so bad for Rahul when he is down there.

However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
