The slogan of ‘Har Har Modi’ will not reverberate in Varanasi since the Shankaracharya has snubbed BJP for using it for its political interests, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said here on Monday as he slammed the saffron outfit for mixing religion with politics.

“The slogan ‘Har Har Mahadev’ (in support of BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi) will not reverberate in Varanasi after Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati snubbed BJP for it,” Singh said at a rally held after sitting Congress MP Narayan Singh Amlabe filed his nomination for the Rajgarh seat.

Sternly criticising BJP for mixing religion with politics, Singh also referred to the issue of discontent among its senior leaders LK Advani and Jaswant Singh and said that the party was disrespecting its stalwarts.

The Congress leader also asked party workers to remain alert while using the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) by noting down the ballot unit number.

“I don’t have much faith in EVMs. Note down the unit numbers carefully, otherwise our hard labour will go in vain,” Singh said.

Looking to woo the voters here, Singh then highlighted the welfare schemes introduced by the Congress-led UPA government, especially the Food Security Act, while slamming BJP for having opposed it.

    Narendra Modi is not the fit candidate for the PM post. He is hurting the sentiments of the people. We can't trust him and can't expect anything from him

    People are definitely not going to vote for him in the elections. He is losing its followers and he is not good for our democracy. People should not vote for him at any cost

    People seems to be irritated with the Mod slogan, and they should be. Har Har Modi doesn't sounds good and its like insulting the Lord Shiva.
