Union Minister Rajeev Chandrashekhar said this on Congress leader Sam Pitroda's Hindu Rashtra statement

Union Minister Rajiv Chandrashekhar has responded to Congress leader Sam Pitroda's statement 'Hindu Rashtra or Secular Country'.

Sam Pitroda had said that the people of India will have to decide whether they want to create a Hindu nation or they want a secular, inclusive and diverse country.

On his statement, Union Minister of State Rajeev Chandrashekhar has said that Sam Pitroda is an example of how far Congress is from the pulse of the country.He told media, “Sam Pitroda is a very good example of the fact that Congress has become far away from the thinking and soul of the country.”

Rajeev Chandrashekhar said, “When Sam Pitroda was a very powerful person in the UPA government, the 2G scam had come to light, the country was surrounded by inflation, investment was declining. Then Sam Pitroda had said - 'What happens with a little inflation? People should tolerate a little.' When the terrorist attack took place in Pulwama, Pitroda had said - 'People get paid to die.' Such a person is the mentor of Rahul Gandhi. In many ways this is visible in Rahul Gandhi's thinking also. Hindutva does not matter to them.”

What did Sam Pitroda say

Sam Pitroda had said that the 2024 elections are important for the future of India. I hope that the people of India will realise how important the 2024 elections are for the future of India.

He had told, “We are standing at a critical juncture where the people of India will have to decide what kind of nation they want to build. Do they want to build a Hindu nation or do they want to build a nation that is truly secular, in which inclusion, diversity and stability are given importance.”

On the Pran Pratishtha ceremony in the Ram temple, Pitroda reportedly said - “I have no problem with any religion, but I have a problem when religion is being made a national issue. Religion is a personal thing. It is okay to visit the temple occasionally, but you cannot make it the main issue. 40 percent people vote for BJP. 60 percent people do not vote for BJP. PM Modi is everyone's Prime Minister and not of any particular party. This is the message the people of India want from the Prime Minister.”

Sam Pitroda said further, “Talk about employment, talk about inflation, talk about science and technology and challenges. People have to decide what the real issues are – is Ram Mandir the real issue? Or is unemployment the real issue.”
