Astha Singh | Republic World Online | Kanyakumari | SDept 10, 2022:: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi sparked a massive row on Saturday as he met a controversial catholic priest George Ponnaiah in Tamil Nadu’s Kanyakumari amid 150-days-long Bharat Jodo Yatra. Ponnaiah has a history of delivering provocative statements which have landed him in trouble in the past. In July 2021, Ponnaiah was arrested from Kallikudi, Madurai for allegedly making a ‘hate speech’ against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, DMK Minister, and many others.
A video clip of Rahul Gandhi has surfaced where he can be seen interacting with the controversial Tamil Nadu pastor and the conversation between them goes on:
Rahul Gandhi: Jesus is?
George Ponnaiah: Jesus is the revelation of the Father
Rahul Gandhi: But he is not God? or is he God?
George Ponnaiah: He’s God. He’s a son of God
Rahul Gandhi: Jesus is also God
Rahul Gandhi: So Jesus Christ is a form of God…?
George Ponnaiah: He is a real God. He’s like a real God. God reveals himself as a man, like a human person, not like Shakti and all.
As the video of Rahul Gandhi with the controversial catholic priest went viral, BJP slammed the Congress leader and accused him of spreading anti-Hindu agenda terming his padayatra as ‘Nafrat Jodo Abhiyan’ and ‘Bharat Todo Yatra’.
BJP national spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla attacked Rahul Gandhi and questioned whether George Ponnaiah is Congress’ poster boy of Bharat Jodo? He stated that Congress is doing Bharat Jodo yatra with icons of ‘Bharat Todo’
“It’s Rahul Gandhi’s Nafrat Jodo Abhiyan. Today they have made a person like George Ponnaiah the poster boy of Bharat Jodo Yatra who challenged, threatened Hindus, and said inappropriate things about Bharat Mata. Congress has a long history of being anti-Hindu”.
Taking to Twitter, BJP’s Sambit Patra asked Is this “Bharat Jodo”? He further went on to say, “Denouncing one religion for the appeasement of the other. This “Hindu Hatred” of Congress in general and Rahul, in particular, is no more a clandestine affair …Rahul wears it on his sleeves with pride! “Bharat-Todo” indeed by Rahul Gandhi!”
