NEW DELHI: Several opposition leaders have slammed PM Modi for visiting these temples alleging him of violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC). Now, Senior Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi came in the suport of PM on Sunday and said that prime minister Narendra Modi is a religious man and there is nothing wrong in his visits to the holy shrines.
The veteran JD(U) leader, "PM Modi is a religious man. I do not see anything wrong if he performs his religious rites.”
PM Modi on Saturday visited Kedarnath temple to offer his prayers. PM also spent over 15 hours meditating inside a holy cave after completing religious rituals at Kedarnath temple. He also left Kedarnath to visit Badrinath temple.
JD(U) leader also criticised opposition parties for joining hands in order to keep PM Modi out of power. He told ANI, "Anti NDA (National Democratic Alliance) front is divided into two camps. One is lead by the Congress party, while the other by Trinamool Congress (TMC), Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP) and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).”
Tyagi also said that Narendra Modi is set to return as prime minister and the opposition will not get any chance to form the government at the Centre.
