Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], Nov. 13 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National General Secretary, Bhupender Yadav on Monday took a jibe at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in wake of him visiting shrines and temples in poll bound states and said that offering prayers is a part of Indian culture but it must come naturally to a person and not only during elections.

Speaking at a press conference, Yadav said "Star campaigner of Congress Rahul Gandhi is visiting temples and offering prayers which is good as it is a part of Indian culture. However, this must come naturally to a person and not only during elections".
