  • Rahul once again offers prayers at Somnath Temple

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaision Saturday described temple visits by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and then Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat as nothing but unscrupulous votebank politics.

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

On November 29, a massive controversy erupted after Rahul Gandhi's name was allegedly mentioned in the non-Hindu visitor book of the Somnath temple.

Briefing reporters about the first meeting of the party's highest decision-making body chaired by Rahul Gandhi, party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that members recalled the struggle party had done in the years it had been out of power including between 1977 and 1980 and between 1999 and 2004.

The Congress also issued a clarification in this regard on Twitter.

"Dear Mr Jaitley, May the Farce be with you", Congress chief has tweeted referring to the government's claims of GDP growth average in the last three years.

Congress officials said that Gandhi will visit Somnath Temple in Gir Somnath district of Saurashtra at 10:30 am before coming to Ahmedabad for the review.

On December 21, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said in Totana that "the Gujarat election has done two things: it has taught former prime minister Manmohan Singh to speak and Rahul Gandhi to visit temples". The Congress put up a credible performance by winning 77 out of 182 seats, its best performance in the state in the past several elections while restricting the BJP's tally to 99.

After getting a brief about the outcome and suggestions of the shivir, the Congress president will speak to party cadre.
