Rahul Gandhi claims he is not being allowed to visit temple in Assam

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has claimed that he is not being allowed to visit a temple in Assam's Nagaon.

A video shows the politician speaking to a policeman in the presence of reporters and asking him why he cannot visit the local temple. The policeman says that Rahul Gandhi can visit the temple but after 3pm.

Gandhi questioned the police on why he was being stopped from visiting the temple.

"Will PM Modi now decide who will visit a temple and when," Gandhi said.

"We do not want to create any problems, simply pray at the temple," Gandhi told the police authorities.

Tight security arrangements, deployment of a huge police force and blockade of roads was in force around the Sri Sri Sankar Dev Satra temple.

Barring the local MP and MLA, no Congress leader was allowed to travel beyond Haiboragaon, around 20 km from the temple spot. Even the media team was not allowed to travel beyond Haiboragaon.

Congress Sewa Dal chief Lalji Desai said it was "shameful" that the prime minister and Assam chief minister were not allowing them to pray at the temple.

"This is atrocious. It is unfortunate that the prime minister will decide who will pray at what time in the country," he said.

"Till the time the prime minister does pooja (in Ayodhya), no one is allowed to pray anywhere," Desai claimed.

"There is no 'loktantra' (democracy) here and the government will decide when people will pray at temples," he said.
