With less than three months for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress is back to playing Hindu & poster politics. A poster issued by a Congress leader in Bihar has landed the party in trouble as its opponents have started accusing it of playing with Hindu sentiments ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. This time the party is playing this religion game in Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh where Congress hoarding portraying party president Rahul Gandhi as a “Ram Bhakt” surfaced.
The hoarding also portrayed Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath as “Hanuman evam Gau (cow) Bhakt”.
The poster also contained a promise to construct a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
Congress has played the Hindu card via religious posters earlier also
Rahul Gandhi was earlier portrayed as “Shiv Bhakt” by the Congress ahead of the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.
On February 2, unidentified miscreants vandalised posters depicting Rahul as Lord Rama, which were put up at various places in the capital city of Bihar’s Patna.
The posters were recently put up in Patna, showing Rahul as the living embodiment of Lord Ram.
Along with Rahul, the posters also featured photographs of prominent Congress leaders, including Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Following this, a complaint was filed at Patna civil court against Rahul, Bihar Congress chief Madan Mohan Jha and four others for allegedly hurting religious sentiments.
