Vrindavan (Uttar Pradesh): BJP president Amit Shah on Monday said the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi had taken the country on the path of dharma (righteousness).
"Due to wrong myths, a gap had been created between dharma and politics over the years, but the Modi government has again taken the country on the path of dharma," Shah said at a function after inauguration of a temple here.
"The country has got a prime minister who reached Kashi after assuming the top political post and performed Ganga 'aarti'. Not only that, he took up the challenge to clean the holy Ganga river from Gangotri to Gangasagar," the Bharatiya Janata Party leader said.
"Under the Modi government, efforts to save our culture will increase," he added.
The temple constructed by noted Bhagwat katha exponent Devkinandan Thakur was inaugurated by Haryana Governor Kaptan Singh Solanki in the presence of Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Mathura MP Hema Malini and actor Mukesh Khanna.
Speaking on the occasion, BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi said that since cow slaughter ban was in the state government's domain, the BJP should be brought to power in Uttar Pradesh to address the matter.
