Congress was once a Hindu party with cow and calf as its symbol, and was ruling major parts of India, after Rajiv Gandhi era, the focus shifted from Hindu party to try and look secular and this has been continuing till recently.
After the UP debacle ,Congress seems to have realised that it has to get over the tag of “muslim party” and need to get Hindu vote in order to win elections. there are clear visible signs of this and here we present three big signs to let readers know how congress is wooing Hindu vote bank
1)Support for sonu nigam
Sonu nigam had said 5 am loudspeaker noise of azaan is disturbing and India needs to get way from the forced religiousness, this came under attack by pseudo liberals ,left and pro jihadi voices, to everyone’s surprise congress’s Ahmed Patel backed Sonu nigam. He said and I quote “Azaan is an essential ingredient for Namaz. In today’s day of modern technology, loudspeakers aren’t”,
Azaan is an essential ingredient for Namaz. In today's day of modern technology, loudspeakers aren't
— Ahmed Patel (@ahmedpatel) April 18, 2017
This is how Sensible people Interpret an issue. Respects Mr Ahmed Patel. It is not about Azaan or Aarti. It's about Loudspeaker. https://t.co/8aABhYLic2

2)Reservation must end : Aswani Kumar congress
In the wake of the proposal to increase the quota of seats reserved for the backward classes and the Muslim community in the Telangana Assembly, the Congress Party today said that reservation should be based on one’s economic stature rather than religion or caste.
Opposing the proposal, Congress leader Ashwani Kumar while drawing upon Dr B.R. Ambedkar’s views stated that all parties should ensure that reservation does not last forever

3)Public outburst on ‘MUSLIM PARTY’ TAG
A review and planning meeting was held at the Congress war room in Delhi and UPCC headquarters in Lucknow, on April 15 and 16, attended by 103 district and 129 city presidents from all across UP, chaired by AICC general secretary in charge of UP, Ghulam Nabi Azad and UPCC president Raj Babbar.
It was felt that the party would have done much better if it contested alone. The unnatural alliance with SP made many perceive Congress as a ‘Muslim party’ and alienated large segment of voters
This public outburst of being tagged as muslim party is another indication of how congress is trying to cozy up with hindu vote bank
While all these are happening, Hindu workers in Karnataka are murdered, no support by congress to Ram mandir , no saffron thread or tilak for police in karnataka and acquittal of col purohit has strengthened the congress party’s MUSLIM PARTY tag .However efforts are on to woo Hindu vote bank.
