Pranav Pandya, the head of All-World Gayatri Pariwar – a spiritual organisation refused to extend VIP treatment to Rahul Gandhi as he ‘doesn’t like his face’, Indian Express has reported. This comment was made by Pandya on Wednesday, during a meeting with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in Haridwar.
As per Pandya, their organisation which claims to have a worldwide membership of 15 crore, has decided to support the BJP for the 2019 Lok Sabha. This announcement was made following BJP President Amit Shah’s meeting with Pandya on Sunday as part of the former’s Sampark for Samarthan campaign.
In the meeting which took place in Haridwar, Shah had sought Gayatri Pariwar’s support, following which the head stated that they would take a decision after reviewing the work done by the BJP government.
Since then not only has Pandya decided to lend support to the BJP, he also seems to have openly professed his animosity towards Congress President Rahul Gandhi.
A DNA report, which also carried Pandya’s statement, quoted him as saying that Rahul can come and visit if he wants but he won’t be received like Amit Shah was. He followed it up by possibly justifying it by stating that he doesn’t like Rahul’s face.
Incidentally, during his trip to Haridwar, Amit Shah had also held similar meetings with Juna Akhara chief Swami Avdheshanand Giri and Bharat Mata Mandir’s founder Swami Satyamitranand.
It remains to be seen whether they too end up professing a similar level of animosity towards Rahul Gandhi.
