After the disastrous Gujarat results, Rahul Gandhi is at it again with his tried and tested formula of Temple Run politics.

On his 2-day visit to Uttar Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi has once again done what he does best.

The President of the Indian National Congress started his UP journey by visiting a Hanuman temple.

On the way to Lucknow-Rae Bareli road, Rahul probably prayed for a Congress renaissance, as he was greeted by over-enthusiastic Party workers.

Rahul Gandhi later sported a vermillion tilak and proceeded towards Amethi – his mother’s constituency. As per the opposition parties, it is a deliberate attempt to play Hindutva politics.

This is the first time Rahul Gandhi has offered prayers at the temple. Prior to this, on September 9,2016, Rahul Gandhi had offered prayers at a Hanuman temple in Ayodhya, thus making him the first ever member of the Nehru-Gandhi clan to visit the disputed land.

Soft-Hinutva has become the latest strategy adopted by Rahul Gandhi as the Congress party has realized the importance of Hindu-votes. Will this strategy of Rahul Gandhi play rich dividends in the upcoming 2019 elections?
