Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday said that Congress leaders gave a message against the Ram temple in Ayodhya by choosing to wear black clothes during protests against price rise and unemployment held earlier during the day.
Two years ago on August 5, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone for the temple.
“I can’t understand why they protested today,” Shah told ANI. “Every day when they protest, they used to wear their usual normal dress but today they wore black clothes. Congress chose this day for protest and wore black clothes because they want to give a subtle message to further promote their appeasement politics because on this day itself PM Modi laid the foundation of Ram Janambhoomi.”
Earlier on Friday, Congress leaders, led by party chief Sonia Gandhi and MP Rahul Gandhi, held protests against inflation, lack of jobs and demanded that the Goods and Services Tax hike on essential items be withdrawn.
A host of Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Mallikarjun Kharge, were detained by the Delhi Police for about six hours.
