UDAIPUR (United States: As Congress Chintan Shivir concludes on Sunday, sources say that the Hindutva discussion has uncovered significant similarities within the political subgroup.Two leaders, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, believed on treading the soft Hindutva line only to face a stern challenge from some leaders, including former Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, who is backed by South leaders.According to Chavan, the ideological issues must be discussed carefully and not as a resemblance to the BJP.Uttar Pardesh leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam, a leading leader who supported the soft Hindutva line, said the party should not shy away from it, whereas Karnataka leaders like B.K.Baghel was primarily responsible for reaching out to Hindus through programs and participating in festivals to counter the BJP's Hindutva ideology, which was opposed on the grounds that the Congress should not compromise in its core philosophy.For short-term electoral gains, it should not look like the B team of the BJP, according to the article.The panel's convenors have submitted their reports to Sonia Gandhi, and the Congress Working Committee (CWC) will make a final call on it.Mallikarjun Kharge is the chair of the commission on political issues. During the continuing Chintan Shivir here, the discussion lasted for two days on the political response to the BJP's hard Hindutva line.There appeared to be a division in this area, with the veterans on the right and the younger group seeking a more softer approach.According to reports, many members of the BJP should stick to its strong secular character with an inclusive agenda to defeat it and refrain from attacking the BJP's pitch, which may be counterproductive.The younger, on the other hand, seemed to be more restless in reaching the soft line of indulgent and participating in religious activities. According to sources, Uttar Pradesh's leaders, the group should participate in religious programs to ensure that it is not isolated.But centrists have argued that Rahul Gandhi's visit to temples hasn't yielded the desired effects, and that it would be better to stick to the BJP's main secular ideology.After all the deliberations have concluded, the CWC resolution will inform what the Congress has decided today.The CWC is unlikely to accept such plans; one of the General Secretaries told informal talks that when the idea of recognizing Ayodhya was rejected by someone, it was dismissed.
