BJP's Tajinder Bagga sends Rahul Gandhi an Italian translation of Bhagwad Gita

Bharatiya Janta Party Delhi spokesperson Tajinder Bagga sends Italian Bhagvad Geeta to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi

Three days after Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi said that he was reading  the Bhagwad Gita to take on the RSS and BJP,  the saffron party’s Delhi Spokesperson Tajinder Pal Bagga sent an Italian translation of  the Holy book to the Gandhi scion. Bagga  posted the holy book to Rahul Gandhi’s address at Tughlak lane and made it public via Twitter. The latest gesture of Bagga is seen as an attack on the Italian origin of Rahul Gandhi’s mother and Congress vice-president Sonia Gandhi. Bagga hogged national spotlight after he assaulted the Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan in 2011.

He had recently suggested that Delhi’s Babar Road, named after India’s first Mughal emperor, be renamed after Ummer Fayaz, the  Army lieutenant who was killed by terrorists in the Valley recently.

Bagga has played a key role in a social media campaign to support Narendra Modi’s candidature for prime minister called “Modi-fying India.

Addressing party functionaries in Chennai on Sunday, Rahul had said “Nowadays I study the Upanishads and the Gita since I am fighting the RSS and BJP,” he said addressing party functionaries here. “I ask them (RSS men), my friend, you are doing this, you are oppressing people, but it is written in the Upanishad that all people are the same and how come you are contradicting what your own religion says,” party sources quoted him as having told them. He alleged that BJP does not fundamentally “understand India,” and “understand only Nagpur,” headquarters of the RSS.

Here is how Twitter reacted:
