Rahul Gandhi attacks Yogi Adiyanath, asks BJP to clean mindset
New Delhi: Taking potshots at Yogi Adityanath, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday attacked Uttar Pradesh government over reports of soaps being distributed to Musahar Dalit families to clean themselves before his visit. He said Bharatiya Janata Party needs to clean its dirty mindset instead of distributing soaps.
"And which soap will the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) use to clean its dirty mindset, please tell me this," Gandhi inquired in a tweet referring to a news report that said soaps, scents and shampoos were distributed to the families in Mainpur Deenapatti village of Kushinagar district.
They received two soaps and a sachet of shampoo and instructions to clean themselves before attending the public meeting on Thursday.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi on Saturday held the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh responsible for caste violence in Saharanpur district and said the clashes escalated due to its “prejudiced action”.
