Mumbai: The Shiv Sena (UBT) on Wednesday stated that the Leader of Opposition, Rahul Gandhi’s speech in the Lok Sabha on July 1 showed that ‘a Gandhi cannot be stopped.

Terming it as ‘a vendetta by time’, the SS(UBT) predicted that Rahul Gandhi’s speech, and its fallout across the country, was a clear pointer that more was in store for the rulers in the coming days, said an edit in the party’s publications, ‘Saamana’ Group.

“In the last 10 years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and their BJP never faced such a situation. Rahul Gandhi has scratched off the vermillion (sindoor) of divinity off Modi…The Leader of Opposition cannot be congratulated enough for this,” said ‘Saamana’.

The ‘Saamana’ edits said that Rahul Gandhi’s statements about how some people are instigating riots in the name of Hindutva and spreading communal hatred for elections, even though real Hinduism is sober, liberal and fearlessly supportive of Truth, angered PM Modi who accused the Congress LoP of “insulting the Hindus”.

To this, the edit said Rahul Gandhi shot back saying “Sir, you have not understood Hindutva at all. BJP does not mean Hindutva…” and “Modi’s expression was worth seeing as nobody had ever dared enter their domain to reprimand them in such a manner”.
