“Rahul Gandhi A Kashmiri Brahmin, Have Record Of Ancestry,” Claims Priest
All details of Rahul Gandhi’s gotra have been “revealed” by a priest in Rajasthan. Congress president Rahul Gandhi visited a temple while campaigning on Monday for the December 7 state election. He is a “Dattatreya” and a Kashmiri Brahmin, as he said a priest in a temple by the famous lake Pushkar.
That answers a question raised by Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Sambit Patra, who had targeted last month at Rahul Gandhi over his party’s pronouncement to justify his temple visits in poll-bound states that he is a “janeu-dhari Brahmin”.
