West Bengal BJP MP Soumitra Khan criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the reincarnation of Swami Vivekananda.
MP who participated in the event on the occasion of Swami Vivekananda’s birthday. Soumitra Khan met the press. Then he said, “Swami Vivekananda is equal to God. Swami Vivekananda is reincarnated in the form of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The way our Prime Minister lives with devotion for the nation today gives us the feeling that he is the Swamiji of modern India. Even when he lost his mother, he served the country.
But his comments have angered the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal. Soumitra’s comment is disrespectful to Swami Vivekananda and his views. The Trinamool Congress said that Vivekananda’s policy was totally against the BJP policy.
However, this is not the first time that Swami Vivekananda has compared Prime Minister Modi. Already BJP MP Nithyanand Rai has called Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the reincarnation of Swami Vivekananda.
Earlier yesterday, Prime Minister Modi paid tribute to Swami Vivekananda on his 160th birthday and said on his Twitter page that “Vivekananda’s life will instill spirituality, patriotism and dedication in the lives of his followers”.
