When did Rahul Gandhi become Brahmin, asks Karandlaje

Shobha Karandlaje

Shobha Karandlaje has accused AICC president Rahul Gandhi of having tried to woo people when he stated in Kashmir that he was a Dattatreya Brahmin.

“Rahul Gandhi made such a statement in spite of the fact that his name is registered in a church,” said the BJP state general secretary.

Karandlaje was addressing a press meet in Chikkamagaluru on Wednesday.

She said that the caste certificate is obtained on the basis of the father’s caste. “When did Rahul Gandhi obtain a caste certificate that stated him to be a Brahmin?” she challenged.

Speaking further, the MP said, “Considering Rahul’s father’s caste, calling himself a Dattatreya Brahmin is illogical. It is shocking to find that the national president of the Congress party would give such a statement when elections are nearing.”

The state secretary also took a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s statement that the temple run is not a new thing for him. “He has done it in Karnataka too. He is only continuing it in other states, keeping in mind elections in five states,” said Karandlaje.

She said that the election manifesto of the Congress for state elections is aimed at appeasement of the minority.

“When the MLAs demand funds for development work, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy points at farmers, saying the money is required to waive farmers’ loans.

The chief minister should reveal how many farmers’ loans have been waived and in which banks,” she demanded.

She also demanded a white paper from the state government on the state of the economy of Karnataka.
