BJP claims actors paid to walk with Rahul Gandhi, Congress asks for proof

BJP claims actors paid to walk with Rahul Gandhi, Congress asks for proof

Several BJP leaders, including Amit Malviya Rane, on Tuesday, claimed actors are paid to walk with Rahul Gandhi in the Bharat Jodo Yatra. In support, a WhatsApp forward bearing no name was shared which calls for the participation of actors in Madhya Pradesh. It said the actors can choose the time slot to walk with Rahul Gandhi for 15 minutes in November. The Congress replied to the unnamed message and said this show how desperately the BJP is trying the discredit the yatra. The controversy hits days after Amol Palekar joined the yatra in Maharashtra.
“Other than refurbishing Rahul Gandhi’s credential as a leader, all that his Yatra has achieved is enable rise of a self serving coterie around him, which is doing more harm by this kind of paid PR. But who are these people willing to associate with Rahul even for some money?” Amit Malviya tweeted.
Maharashtra Congress leader Sachin Sawant said the cited WhatsApp forward has no name, no number and does not hold water at all. “It is the BJP which masters the art of armtwisting celebrities to portray artificial support for them, not Congress,” Sawant tweeted.
“Don’t we remember tweets of celebrities on petrol diesel rates during UPA govt & during farmers’ protest? Everyone knows that it takes courage to stand against autocratic & divisive bjp agenda,” he said adding that those who have joined Bharat Joda Yatra are standing for the cause and for our nation.
“BJP’S attempt to belittle their honesty and malign their characters only shows how correct the stand of artists is. Today’s statement of PM against Bharat Joda Yatra & such malicious propaganda from bjp only reaffirms our resolve and proves that the yatra is on the right track,” the Congress leader said.
