Congress president Rahul Gandhi today accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of insulting his "mentor" L K Advani despite Hinduism teaching how a "guru" was the most important person in an individual's life.
Addressing a rally of party workers here, Gandhi said Modi did not treat his guru (Advani) with respect even at official functions.
"Everybody knows who is the guru and mentor of Modi -- L K Advani. But the Prime Minister doesn't accord respect to him even at official functions. It is me who follows protocol and I am always with him (Advani) during (such) events," he said.
"Today I feel very sad for Advani ji. The Congress party has given him more respect than Modi ji has," he said.
