Rahul must visit Kumbh, should also light candle at his grandfather's tomb: UP Deputy CM
Stressing on the significance of visiting Feroze Gandhi's grave, Sharma added, "Rahul Gandhi hasn't been there yet, hence I urge him that he should visit the Kumbh for purpose of worship on the basis of Dattatreya Gotra, but he must also pay obeisance at the grave of his grandfather. I advise him to worship during the Kumbh but he should also light a candle at the grave of his grandfather."
In November 2018, the Congress president while visiting the famous Brahma temple in Pushkar had offered 'puja' and also revealed his 'gotra' as Kashmiri Kaul Brahmin, the priest of the temple had said.
The priest had then said that, "Rahul Gandhi came to the temple to perform 'puja.' Motilal Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vijaylakhsmi Pandit, Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Maneka Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are all Kashmiri Pandits."
A similar trivia about Rahul Gandhi had surfaced ahead of the Gujarat assembly elections in the wake of his frequent temple visits in the state, when he revealed that he is not only a Hindu but a 'Janeu Dhari Hindu,' one who wears a sacred thread.
