Faizabad (UP): Taking a veiled dig at Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said people have started showing their gotra and sacred thread to become prominent in the country’s politics. Addressing a gathering in the district on Saturday he said, the people who had described themselves as accidentally Hindus were now realising that they were Hindus in the real sense and it was a victory of Sanatan faith, reports PTI.
He said Google failed before the epic Ramayana, which was written by sage Valmiki, and he asserted that the knowledge of the spiritual books was correct instead of what the search engine said. “The word Kumbh has started becoming prevalent. It has become a fashion and trademark for the branding of one’s programme… These days people are showing their Gotra and janeyu (sacred thread) to become prominent in the country’s politics,” Adityanath said without naming Gandhi.
“The people who described themselves as accidentally Hindu are now realising that they are also Hindus. (They are realising) it is not accidental and we are Hindus in the real sense. Now they are remembering their janeyu and Gotra. I think this is the victory of India’s Sanatan faith. This is the victoy of our beliefs,” he said.
