Rahul Gandhi: RSS workers stopped me from entering Assam templetext_fields
New Delhi: Rahul Gandi on Monday claimed that he was stopped from entering a temple in Barpeta by RSS workers during his recent visit to Assam, saying this was BJP's style of politics which was "unacceptable".
A furious Congress Vice-President, who said he wanted to raise three issues, also targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Kerala chief minister Oomen Chandy being not invited to an event to be attended by him in Kollam on Tuesday, saying he has "insulted" the people of the state.
Rahul was interacting with reporters while taking part in a protest by the Congress outside Parliament House over the law and order situation in the state.
"When I went to Assam I wanted to visit a temple in Barpeta district. And at the temple the RSS people they stopped me entering the temple. This is the way the BJP operates.
"They made the woman there stand in front of me and told me that I cannot enter into the temple," he said, and asked, "Who are they to stop me?," Rahul said.
Rahul, who was in Berpeta on last Friday, said he visited the temple later in the evening when the RSS workers had left the place.
Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Sunday alleged that BJP and RSS had conspired to not allow Rahul to enter Barpeta Satra during his visit to the state.
