Congress party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, on Monday, claimed that he was stopped by RSS workers from entering a temple in the Indian state of Assam. He also rued that this was the ruling BJP’s style of politics which is “unacceptable”. “When I went to Assam, I wanted to visit a temple in Barpeta district. And, at the temple, the RSS people stopped me. This is the way the BJP operates. They made the women there stand in front of me and told me that I cannot enter the temple,” he said, and asked, “Who are they to stop me?”
