Acharya Pramod puts Congress in a spot

NewsAcharya Pramod puts Congress in a spot


Spiritual leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam has once again put his party Congress in a spot by saying that some Congress leaders hate Lord Ram. According to Congress leaders, this has given ammunition to the party’s national opposition party BJP to say that Congress is an anti-Hindu party. A party insider said, “This statement should be reckoned as anti-party activity. And it should result in Pramod’s expulsion.” However, Congress leaders refused to speak on the controversy. A Congress office bearer in UP said, “We have not given any statement even when Akhilesh Yadav spoke against the Congress and it’s leadership. This is Congress party, and things move on like that.”
Acharya Pramod Krishnam had told a news agency, “Someone who hates Lord Ram cannot be a Hindu. The whole world knows about attempts to stall the construction of Ram temple. Who hates Ram and who is devoted to the deity, I don’t think it is a mystery. Being a Congress member does not mean truth is not told. I have felt that there are some Congress leaders who hate both Ram and Ram temple.”

Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma slammed the Congress while citing Acharya Pramod’s remarks. He said on social networking site X, “Senior Cong leader & Family loyalist, Acharya Pramod ji confirms what I have been saying—Fearing a particular vote bank, Congress is ‘allergic’ to Prabhu Shri Ram. The proof is before polls, you will find their leaders and so-called Hanuman Bhakts visiting every temple except Shri Ram Janmabhoomi. My challenge remains—when will they visit Ram Lalla Virajman? My sympathies with Acharya ji, Congressis will abuse him for speaking in favour of Prabhu Shri Ram. Congress doesn’t want the support of Hindus”.”

A Congress insider said, “He does not hold any position in the party, so his comments do not reflect Congress’ stance on issues. He always tries to speak something controversial and later bring in Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s name to save himself. The Congress is not that much functional in UP so none has cared to take any action against him.”
