Shiv Bhakt Rahul expels partymen for chanting Har Har Mahadev, BJP lashes out

Three Congress workers have reportedly been expelled from the party for shouting ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and ‘Bam Bam Bhole’. As per reports, the ‘activities’ of these three workers at Bamrauli airport on 28th September made their ‘Shiv Bhakt‘ party president Rahul Gandhi ‘uncomfortable’.

According to a report in, 3 Congress leaders, namely Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Mukund Tiwari, Youth Congress Pradesh secretary Haseeb Ahmed and former general secretary of youth congress Jitendra Tiwari.

The report states that when Rahul Gandhi landed in Bamrauli airport in Uttar Pradesh after his Chitrakoot address on 28 September, these three leaders shouted slogans like ‘Shiv Bhakt Rahul Gandhi Zindabad’, ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and reportedly gifted a picture of Lord Shiva to him. Rahul Gandhi reportedly found these slogans unnecessary and uncomfortable. On top of that, former MLA Anugrah Narayan Singh, who was supposed to bring food for Rahul Gandhi was reportedly stuck in a traffic jam and thus Rahul had to go back hungry.

Anil Dwivedi, a district president in Congress party has informed that the three persons had ignored ‘party discipline’ and Rahul Gandhi’s security while chanting the slogans and hence they have been expelled. However, Haseeb Ahmad, one of the expelled leaders, has reportedly stated the media that similar slogans were raised in Amethi too after Rahul Gandhi returned from Kailash Mansarovar yatra. He has also reportedly questioned Rahul Gandhi’s sincerity because there is nothing wrong in chanting Har Har Mahadev.

Haseeb Ahmed has earlier been in news for depicting Rahul Gandhi as Shri Krishna protecting Renuka Chowdhury’s honour and BJP leaders including the Prime Minister as Kauravas as a recreation of the famous episode from the Mahabharata when the Kauravas attempted to disrobe Draupadi.

Earlier Haseeb had got creative with their posters and shown his support for Congress president’s sister, Priyanka Gandhi, since ‘mother is ill and brother is overworked’.

The BJP, however, has lashed out at Congress and Rahul Gandhi stating that the entire projection of Rahul Gandhi being a Shiv Bhakt was a total farce.

Sudhanshu Trivedi, the BJP spokesperson, has stated that Rahul Gandhi has shown his true colours from Mansarovar to Prayag Raj and he is not a Shiv Bhakt but rather a ‘Bagoola Bhakt’ (fake devotee, referring to the Panchatantra tale of a heron that fakes religious devotion to find easy prey).

It is notable here that since Gujrat elections, Rahul Gandhi and Congress have been trying very hard to play the ‘soft Hindutva’ card. Rahul was seen temple hopping during the Gujarat and Karnataka elections. He had also claimed to have gone on a religious pilgrimage to Kailash Mansarovar. Congress party workers and leaders have made several attempts to portray him as a Shiv Bhakt, Ram Bhakt, and even an Avatar of Shiva.
