Oust Hindutvawadis, bring rule of Hindus, says Rahul Gandhi | India News – Times of India


JAIPUR: Remove “Hindutvawadis” from power and “bring the rule of Hindus”, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi said at a party rally in Jaipur on Sunday, stressing that the two are separate sets-a supporter of Hindutva chooses “satta-graha” to grab authority, while the Hindu searches for truth through satyagraha.
He said that Hindutvawadis, not Hindus, were ruling the country since 2014 and 4-5 capitalists controlled the nation’s wealth, all government institutions were answerable to “one organisation” and RSS men were ministers’ OSDs. “We have to remove these Hindutvawadis and bring the rule of Hindus. Who is a Hindu? He who loves all, embraces all and who fears none and respects all religions.”
He referred to Mahatma Gandhi as Hindu and Nathuram Godse as Hindutvawadi to highlight his point that a “Hindutvawadi spends his entire life striving for power…his path is not satyagraha, but satta(power)-graha”. Calling India a country of Hindus, he said: “You and I are Hindu, but not Hindutvawadi.”
He blamed the “Hindutvawadi” for doing a handful of capitalists’ bidding and letting the country’s inflation rise uncontrollably. He read out a list of grocery and fuel prices comparing these with rates in 2014 to underline the rising inflation under the Modi government.
“Earlier, the unorganised sector’s share was 52%, now it is 20% and 90% of the corporate profit goes to 20 companies.”
Addressing the rally, party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said PM wants to sell public resources that Congress governments built over 70 years to his “crony capitalists”. Congress president Sonia Gandhi was present at the meeting, but didn’t speak.
