<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>On Sunday, actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal launched another attack on Congress claiming that it would be a ‘sin and moral turpitude’, to vote on the basis of ‘caste and creed’ in the land of ‘Gautam Buddha-like Narendra Modi.”Addressing a gathering while attending PM Modi’s Mann Ki Baat event in Rajkot, he was quoted saying by Indian Express: “Such a man (like Narendra Modi) 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.”Rawal went on to ask whether parents wanted their son to be Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi. He urged people to vote for whoever they picked. He also suggested that Congress was using Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakor and Jignesh Mevani, to save Rahul Gandhi’s political career. Rawal was in the eye of the storm after allegedly comparing royals to monkeys. Rawal however apologised, claiming his ‘monkey’ comment was aimed at the Nizam of Hyderabad and not Rajputs. The Karni Sena, in the news over the protests against Padmavati, had warned Paresh Rawal over his statement.
