Congress leader and spiritual guru Acharya Pramod has attacked his party leadership for taking what he calls is an 'Anti-Hindu' stand. This he feels is one of the reasons for him not being asked to join the party campaign in Madhya Pradesh.'I have felt that there are some leaders in Congress who hate Lord Ram. These leaders also hate the word 'Hindu', they want to insult Hindu religious gurus. They don't like that there should be a Hindu religious guru in the party" Acharya Pramod Krishnam said in an exclusive interview with ANI.Sharing a video clip of Krishnam's remark, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma took to social media platform X and said,"Senior Cong leader & Family loyalist, Acharya Pramod ji confirms what I have been saying- Fearing a particular vote bank, Congress is “allergic” to Prabhu Shri Ram".

Acharya Krishnam also raised serious questions on the opposition INDIA alliance and said "I think there is no such thing as INDIA Bloc left." "The main goals of making INDIA Bloc was to defeat PM Modi and de-throne the BJP government. But the sad thing is that the opposition hates Modi so much that they forget that they have started hating India. If PM Modi inaugurates a new Parliament then they oppose it, if the train is named 'Vande Bharat' then they oppose it. No one stops you from criticizing the PM, but it is not right to hate him. The opposition has become so confused that it has forgotten everything" Acharya Krishnam said.He further said that nobody in the INDIA Bloc is criticizing the comments made by Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on women in the state Assembly and It would be a mistake if we keep blaming BJP and Modi for everything.
Responding to Krishnam's remark, the Congress said it was his personal opinion. “Whatever Acharya Pramod Krishnam has said is his personal opinion...Congress respects all religions and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi is the biggest example of it”, Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely said.
