Mumbai: Speaking at a gathering of ‘Mann Ki Baat, Chai Ke Saath’ in Rajkot on Sunday, actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal said that discriminating on the basis of caste and creed, while Assembly election would be a sin in the land of “Gautam Buddha-like Narendra Modi”.
The actor turned politician asked the audience whether they would like their children to become someone like “PM Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi,” quotes The Indian Express.
Rawal exemplified PM Modi and said: “Such a man is difficult to find. Such a man can only come after much worship. Such dynamic persons are incarnations and can’t be produced by politics. If we decide to vote on the basis of caste and creed in the state of a man who has left his family and everything else behind and, like Gautam Buddha, is out to serve the country, we could be ungrateful people. It would be a sin, a moral turpitude. We can’t do it. We are people of the land of Sardar Patel and Mahatma Gandhi.”
“Pray to God, remember your patron deity, visualise your parents, recall values your teachers have taught you, put your hand on your chest and then ask yourself honestly a question whether you want to make your son Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi. Vote for the person who is your answer,” the MP from Ahmedabad said.
