Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his Delhi church visit the other day.
“It can be deemed good if it is an act of repentance,” he said. Vijayan further metaphorically said that a tiger that has got a sense of taste will always tread the same path.
PM Modi visited the Sacred Heart Cathedral church in Delhi on the occasion of Easter. PM Modi offered prayers at the church and also joined the church's Prayer Mass held as part of the festival.
Many opposition party leaders had targeted Modi over his church visit. With his dig on Modi, CM has joined that club.
BJP, according to its critics has been trying to make inroads into the Christian community and is desperate to make a vote bank out of it.
From local BJP leaders to chiefs, including Narendra Modi, have been trying to establish a rapport with Christian faith leaders.
However, BJP-led governments in various states are accused of having anti-minority sentiments towards including those from the Christian faith.
