Rahul Gandhi questions Modi on ‘spirituality in cleaning toilets’

 New Delhi, April 23: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi on associating spirituality with cleaning of toilets and also took a jibe at him on frying of ‘pakodas’. “The Prime Minister sees spirituality in cleaning of toilets and making ‘pakodas’. But, for Modi, becoming the Prime Minister only is spirituality,” the Congress leader said at the nationwide ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign launched here. Quoting Modi from his book “Karmyogi”, Gandhi said: “This quote reflects his thinking and ideology.”

The Congress leader further quoted Modi as saying: “What is the spirituality of a person working to clean toilets? Has anyone experienced the spirituality of a man of the Valmiki samaj, who has to remove human excreta and dirt everyday. “I do not believe that he accepted the task merely to fill his belly. He would not have stayed for so long in that profession, and certainly not from generation to generation.” (IANS)
