Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday attacked the Congress Party and its Vice President Rahul Gandhi and said if the grand old party came to power in Gujarat, it would be an 'onset of mafia raj'.
Remembering Dr BR Ambedkar on his 124th birth anniversary, Adityanath, alluding to Congress President Sonia Gandhi's nationality, said, "Nobody respects Babasaheb Ambedkar more than the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). If Rahul Gandhi and the Congress Party comes to power, it will be the onset of mafia raj. The mafia originated in Italy after all."
Further attacking Congress on the Ayodhya matter, Adityanath said it was manipulating with the Hindu belief.
Adityanath also advised Rahul Gandhi to visit temples out of faith and not out of hypocrisy.
