Trinamool practising 'soft Hindutva': BJP

IANS  |  Kolkata 

Terming Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's visit to a temple in district as "soft Hindutva", state on Wednesday said the ruling party was trying to arrest consolidation of "Hindu votes" in favour of his party.

"If we go to temples, we are branded as communal. But if leaders visit temples, they remain secular. The is practising soft in Bengal to stop the consolidation of Hindu votes in favour of BJP," he said.

The "so-called secular leaders" realised that the Hindus are uniting under and secular leaders understood they would no longer be able to win elections by appeasement politics, said.

Citing Rahul Gandhi's visit to temples in during the poll campaign, he said Banerjee was taking lessons from him.
