Rahul`s Brahmin comment draws criticism from BJP
New Delhi: BJP on Saturday took a dig at Rahul
Gandhi for his reported comment that he is a Brahmin, saying
it shows that he and Congress have lost patience after failing
to get the mandate in the Uttar Pradesh elections.
"Now this is crossing all limits that Rahul Gandhi has
started informing what his caste is...that he is a Brahmin.
Congress has lost all patience after losing the mandate in
Uttar Pradesh elections," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar
During a stock-taking meeting of Congress on the UP poll
debacle, Rahul had reportedly rebutted claims from some party
leaders that the party was not giving due significance to
"I am a Brahmin and general secretary of the party,"
Rahul reportedly said.
BJP used this opportunity to take potshots at the
Congress general secretary.
"In the UP elections, Congress had talked about religion
when it promised reservations on religious lines and in doing
so it had played communal politics," Javadekar said.
Both Congress and BJP have been analysing what went wrong
for them in the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh as
the poll results were way below their expectations.
Interestingly, both these parties feel they should have
wooed the upper castes, especially the Brahmins, to increase
their seat tally.
