After the exhausting ‘Temple run’ by Rahul Gandhi, now its time for Iftar

The president of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi has decided to hold a grand Iftar party on June 13. It is expected that most of the prominent members close to the party will attend the meet.

Rahul Gandhi will be hosting Iftar party for the first time since he took the charge as the Congress president. The grand Iftar party will be held at Taj Palace Hotel in Delhi, chief of Congress Minority cell chief Nadeem Javed said. Congress has celebrated Iftar party officially when they were in power. The then Prime Minister used to host the grand Iftar party during his tenure.

This party is being held after the span of three years, as last time Congress had organized it in 2015, under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi. It is expected that this party will be attended by leaders of all faiths and communities. It is also said that all the leaders of opposition parties will be invited along with the top diplomats. This event organized by Congress party is keenly watched as Congress is trying to woo as many opposition parties to fight against the BJP in the next elections.

This comes after the President of India has decided not to celebrate any religious functions officially in Rastrapathi Bhavan, as it involves spending from the public exchequer.

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao decision to host Iftar party has caused a controversy. Activists have moved to court seeking to stay the celebrations as it involves public money. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also hosted an Iftar but Congress leaders stayed away from it.

While Rahul Gandhi had gone on a ‘Temple run’ during Gujarat elections and allied with radical Islamist group PFI during Karnataka elections, news surfaced of Congress providing tacit support to Maoists during the Bhima Koregaon violence. With these developments, it seems evident that Rahul Gandhi’s strategy is that of Soft Hindutva in public, minority appeasement in private and creating caste divide in secret.
