Priyanka Gandhi Vadra skips visit to Jain temple during Saharanpur roadshow on instruction of Imran Masood, Jain community angry: Report

Congress candidate Imran Masood had made headlines during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by threatening to chop off the then Prime Ministerial candidate of BJP Narendra Modi into small pieces.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra drew the ire of Jain community in Saharanpur after she skipped her planned visit to a Jain temple in the city during her roadshow in support of Congress candidate Imran Masood, as per an IndiaTV report.

Priyanka had visited Saharanpur yesterday to campaign for Congress Lok Sabha candidate from Saharanpur constituency, Imran Masood. During her roadshow, she was supposed to visit a Jain temple on the way but according to people of the Jain community, who were waiting outside the temple to welcome her, she skipped visiting the temple on the instruction of Imran Masood.

According to the IndiaTV report, people had been waiting for hours outside the temple with Puja Thalis hoping that Priyanka would pay a visit, as planned, to seek blessings. But Priyanka’s roadshow moved ahead without stopping at the temple. Hurt by Priyanka’s insensitivity towards the sentiments of the Jain community, people said that the Congress will pay for this insult in elections. Many of them said that they will now vote for Modi in the elections. Recently three rallied of the Nehru-Gandhi had to be cancelled in the Shamli, Bijnor and Saharanpur owing to the bad weather.

Congress candidate Imran Masood had made headlines during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by threatening to chop off the then Prime Ministerial candidate of BJP Narendra Modi into small pieces. Masood who was earlier a Samajwadi Party leader has around 6 criminal cases registered against him.

The fight for the Saharanpur Lok Sabha seat is going to be an interesting one as Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has also fielded a Muslim candidate Fazlur Rahman from the constituency which might result in the splitting of the Muslim vote.

Sensing the possibility of a split in the Muslim vote, BSP supremo Mayawati had openly appealed to the Muslim community in her recent rally in Saharanpur, not to split their vote by supporting the Congress candidate and consolidate their vote in the favour of the gathbandhan candidate.
