Agar/Malwa (Madhya Pradesh): State Congress president Kamal Nath on Sunday asked the Bharatiya Janata Party, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leaders to have a discussion on religion and spirituality with Rahul Gandhi, claiming it will prove he has more knowledge about these subjects than them. Talking to reporters in Soyatkalan town of Agar Malwa district on the last day of the Bharat Jodo Yatra's Madhya Pradesh leg before it enters Rajasthan, Nath said is a possibility that Gandhi may embark on another yatra from "east to west" in the country.

Asked about Gandhi focusing on religion and spirituality in his speeches during the foot march, Nath said, "I challenge the BJP, RSS and VHP leaders to have a discussion with Gandhi on the issues of religion and spirituality before media persons." The discussion will prove Gandhi has more knowledge about religion and spirituality than these persons, Nath claimed. He said the main aim of Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra is to save the Constitution and culture of the country. The yatra entered the Hindi-speaking belt for the first time and has got a huge response from the people, the state Congress chief said.

The foot march has helped in improving among the people Gandhi's image which the BJP "distorted" through social media in the last eight years, Nath claimed. Congress workers from far off places including Rewa and Sidhi, located about 700 km away from here, have come to join the yatra and that has proved its success, he said, adding the foot march got a huge response from people in MP, including women and children.

The BJP used to say the yatra would end in Kerala itself, but it is getting a huge response everywhere and people are coming on their own to shower their love on Gandhi, Nath said. "Even those shouting Modi-Modi (in support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi) got silenced with the kind of response the yatra got in Madhya Pradesh," he said.

Nath said even little girls gave their piggy banks to Gandhi on the occasion as there was a lot of enthusiasm among them.Gandhi himself said his yatra got a huge response in Madhya Pradesh, especially in Indore, Nath pointed out. During the yatra, Gandhi interacted with farmers, small industrialists, shop owners, women, differently-abled persons, weavers, tribals, Dalits, sanitation workers, among others, he said. Leader of Opposition in the MP Assembly Govind Singh and former Union minister Suresh Pachouri also addressed the media.

RaGa pays tribute to freedom fighter Tantya Bhil Agar Malwa: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Sunday paid tributes to freedom fighter Tantya Bhil on his death anniversary. Senior party leader and state former chief minister Kamal Nath also accompanied Gandhi to pay tributes.
