Spirtual Guru vs Congress Guru: Naxalite-Area welcomed Sri Sri, but “Amethi ke ham hain Rajkumar” could not do so. Congress tries to make Amethi a “Vatican City”. Today Nov 8, 2011, Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said he could not visit Amethi during his ongoing anti-corruption yatra in Uttar Pradesh as the Ashram which had extended him invitation was pressurized not to call him.
"I was invited by Sri Hari Ashram to visit Amethi during my yatra but I had to change it (the plan) because my people there were facing undue pressure from political parties and they requested me not to come," he said. On reaching Shri Mahua Baba Sewa Ashram in Jamsoti village in Naxal-infested Naugarh block of the district, the spiritual guru addressed a gathering, mostly comprising tribals, on the art of living.
Congress Leader said in the past “Nagaland is for Christ”. Now what does Rahul Gandhi want to say?
Bush Administration has denied in America the entry of Narendra Modi on political pressure. Modi is not American Citizen.
Now what does Congress want to do? Is Amethi in America? Has Amethi become Vatican City?
"I was invited by Sri Hari Ashram to visit Amethi during my yatra but I had to change it (the plan) because my people there were facing undue pressure from political parties and they requested me not to come," Sri Sri said. Amethi is the Lok Sabha constituency of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi.
Advocating a strong Lokpal Bill, Sri Sri said his yatra was not to oppose or support any political party.
On the Naxal issue, Spiritual GuruSri Sri Ravi Shankar said youths, who had been misled and were involved in such activities, should join the mainstream.
"All the children of this region must get education and no one should be deprived from going to schools. I will provide free of cost education to everyone in this region," Sri Sri said.
