Home News Reports Rahul Gandhi greeted with "Modi Modi" chants while exiting Shree Ranchhodji Temple in Kheda, Gujarat

Rahul Gandhi greeted with “Modi Modi” chants while exiting Shree Ranchhodji Temple in Kheda, Gujarat

Ever since the campaigning for the Gujarat assembly elections began, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has been visiting one temple after another in order to possibly woo the Hindu votes of the state.

This action of the Congress leader resulted in a momentous gaffe, after social media erupted with reports of his name appearing in the ‘non-Hindu’ register before taking the darshan of the famous Somnath Temple. Rather than tactfully dealing with the issue, the Congress caused extra confusion and later took things to the next level by calling Rahul a “Janeu dhaari Hindu”.

This sucker punch though failed to dent Rahul’s vigour and he seems to have continued to visit temples in the state.

This now again seems to have caused him embarrassment, after ANI reported that he was greeted with “Modi Modi” chants while he exited the Shree Ranchhodji Temple in Kheda, Gujarat:

In the video, Rahul is seen smiling and coming out of the temple with a yellow shawl wrapped around him. But possibly much to his unhappiness, a section of the crowd then started to chant “Modi Modi” while he was exiting in his car.

This isn’t the only time Rahul Gandhi has had to deal with such heckling.

We had reported how the Congress leader had to face chants like ‘Modi, Modi’ and ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ while visiting a textile market in Surat, Gujarat. Even though the visit was planned in the backdrop of Gujarat Congress’ efforts to paint demonetisation and GST a complete failure, some people were having none of it.

Such pro Modi slogans have also been witnessed in peculiar situations like, during a fight between two factions of Bihar Congress workers. There it was seen that while the fight was in full flow, few workers started their “Narendra Modi Zindabad” chants, which further escalated the matter.
