10 highlights of Rahul Gandhi's MP visit: "PM has no room in his heart for oppressed, women," says Congress President

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Oct 15: Congress president Rahul Gandhi Monday began his two-day tour of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh by offering prayers at the famous Maa Peetambara Peeth temple complex here. Gandhi reached Datia district in the morning by a helicopter from Gwalior. He then went to the temple complex where he offered prayers to the deity and stayed at the 'shaktipeeth' for about half-an-hour. Elections will be held in Madhya Pradesh on November 28. Here are the 10 highlights of his visit:1. State Congress president Kamal Nath and senior party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia accompanied him. Scindia introduced priests and other members of the temple trust to Gandhi.2. Rahul Gandhi went to PMO only once. Because he wants to talk about farmers. I told PM, farmers are requesting him to waive off their farm loan. 

3. I told him I know he wants to waive off loans of the rich but he should do it for farmers too. He didn't utter a word. 

4. Modi ji gave the slogan 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao'. We liked the slogan but then a BJP MLA raped someone. The CM tried to shield him, PM didn't expel him from the party. He never spoke about it. Actual slogan is 'Beti Padhao aur Beti ko BJP ke MLA se bachao,' said Rahul Gandhi.

5. PM has no room in his heart for oppressed and women. He has room only for industrialists. Mehul Bhai, Nirav Bhai, Anil Bhai, Lalit Bhai. 

6. He never calls farmers and labourers 'Bhai'. Have you ever heard Modi ji calling poor 'Bhai'? Never. If he isn't in suit-boot, he isn't 'Bhai'.

7. Many political bigwigs have visited the shrine in the past. Indira Gandhi, former PM, visited the shrine in 1979, before polls in 1980 and later after becoming the prime minister. 

8. Later, Rajiv Gandhi also paid a visit to the shaktipeeth after becoming PM in 1984-85.9. Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia is the chairperson of the Peetambara Trust, that manages the affairs of the shrine.10. When the then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru had fallen very sick, senior Congress leader Kamlapati Tripathi organised a special 'puja' for his recovery there.
