Right-wing Hindu Masabha has made a sensational allegation that the activists behind the Shani Shingnapur temple movement enjoyed the support of Aam Aadmi Party.

Speaking to ABP News, the controversial leader of Hindu Mahasabha, Ajay Gautam, described the movement politically motivated adding that the movement’s leader ‘will soon contest election on AAP ticket.’

He said, ” There are thousands of temples in India, where these women can go and worship. What’s the need to insist on worshiping in one particular temple. This is nothing but a ploy to defame Sanatan religion. It’s become a fashion now a days to portray our religion in poor light. Just wait for some time and you will know the hidden agenda behind these protests. Soon she (Trupti Desai of Ranragini Bhumata Brigade’) will be seen contesting elections on AAP ticket.”
