New Delhi: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said he visits temples because he is a Hindu and no one should have any objections about it.
The national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party replied to a query of him being indulged in “soft Hindutva” by visiting temples.
“Do you go to the temple? I also go to the temple. There is nothing wrong in going to the temple. You feel peaceful when you visit it. What is their (those alleging soft Hindutva) objection? Why there should be any objection? I am going to a temple because I am a Hindu. My wife visits the Gaurishankar temple,” Arvind Kejriwal quoted.
“I want to say Pramod Sawant is copying us. When I said we will give electricity free, he gave water free. When I said we will provide employment allowance, he announced about 10,000 jobs, and when I spoke about pilgrimages, he announced his scheme,” he also said.
