In this editorial segment, Mr. Sujit Nair discusses the issue of inflammatory speeches delivered by political leaders during election campaigns. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, while campaigning for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Jaipur Rural district, responded to a question about the use of religion and Hindutva in politics. He emphasized that if the BJP does not speak about Hindus, it should speak about “”Babur and Aurangzeb.”” Sarma asserted the party’s pride in speaking about Hinduism and highlighted the concept of Sarva Dharma Samabhava, emphasizing equal respect for all religions within Hindu culture. Earlier in the day, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, during a rally in Rajasthan’s Dungarpur district, cautioned voters about the use of emotions and religion in politics. She urged voters to assess whether such tactics truly serve their interests. In response to guarantees made by the Congress government in various state assemblies, Sarma took a dig at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, questioning the credibility of his guarantees. He mocked the idea of taking Rahul Gandhi’s guarantee, suggesting that even his mother cannot vouch for him. Regarding Priyanka Gandhi’s claim that her grandmother, former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, taught her the ‘Gayatri Mantra,’ Himanta Sarma remarked that it is not customary in Sanatan culture to publicize such details. He added that knowing the Gayatri Mantra is widespread among Indian children and is not exclusive to any individual. Furthermore, Sarma accused the Ashok Gehlot government in Rajasthan of failing to fulfill promises related to farm loan waivers and unemployment allowances. He criticized the government for alleged involvement in paper leaks and the mistreatment of women.
