Gourav Vallabh joins BJP

In an interview given to news agency ANI, Mr. Vallabh expressed that he was ‘hurt’ with party’s silence on instances when some of the senior leaders of Congress and INDIA bloc ill spoke about Sanatan Dharma.

Speaking to ANI on Thursday after distancing himself from the Congress, Vallabh said, “I wrote to (Congress national president) Mallikarjun Kharge, voicing all my misgivings and emotions. I was hurt by my party’s silence when some prominent leaders in the INDIA bloc made unsavoury remarks against Sanatan. I also publicly opposed our party’s stand on Ram Mandir (the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ of Lord Ram Lalla in Ayodhya).”

Gourav has been a part of several TV debates while in Congress and was a fairly expressive representative. But he felt ‘uncomfortable with the directionless’ way in which the party is moving

“I am uncomfortable with the directionless way, in which the Congress Party is moving forward today. I can neither raise anti-Sanatan slogans nor abuse the wealth creators of the country all day long, which is why I I am resigning from all posts and primary membership of Congress Party,” he said in a post on X.

“These days the party is moving in the wrong direction. On one hand, we talk about the caste-based census and on the other hand, the party seems to oppose the entire Hindu society. This style of working gives a misleading message to the public that the party is a supporter of a particular religion only. This is against the basic principles of Congress,” he added.
