Bengaluru: The Congress has never hidden its inclinations against the building of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Its leaders have openly spoken against the need for a temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram. 

But when it comes to elections, the Congress, known for its appeasement policy, doesn’t think twice before doing anything in order to get votes. 

Here’s an interesting poster in which Lord Ram’s face has been superimposed with that of Rahul Gandhi. This was put out last year during the national elections. 


The poster shows the Gandhi scion at the centre with photos of other leaders including Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Vadra, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh surrounding him.
During the Ram Sethu project, the Congress blatantly spoke against the interests of the Hindu community in the top court, claiming that Lord Ram doesn’t exist. 

It was the year 2007. The Congress submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court in its opposition to the demand of the scrapping of Ram Sethu project.

It said, “Valmiki Ramayana and Ramcharitmanas admittedly form an important part of ancient Indian literature, but these cannot be said to be historical records to incontrovertibly prove the existence of the characters and occurrences of events depicted therein.” 

Poster politics: 

A few years ago, prior to Rahul’s Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections campaign, posters of the party chief depicted as ‘Shiv Bhakt Rahul Gandhi’ emerged in Bhopal. The posters showed Rahul offering water to a shiv ling and there was a photograph of Mount Kailash in the background.

In another instance, a poster of Rahul was put up by Congress workers last year that depicted him as a Brahmin. In the poster, Rahul’s caste was mentioned as ‘Brahmin Samudayay' below his name, implying that he belongs to the Brahmin community.

It is shameful that the grand old party has double standards when it comes to dealing with Hindu interests.
