Launching a stinging attack against the Congress for questioning his knowledge on Hinduism, Prime Minister Narendra Modi used the dynast-worker analogy to ask the Opposition party where it got its expertise on the religion.

Addressing an election rally in Jodhpur, the PM said in a sarcastic jibe that he was a small "kaamdar" (worker) who never claimed to have full knowledge of Hinduism but the "naamdar" (dynast) has the right to speak.

Modi has often referred to Rahul Gandhi as "naamdar". He also brought up the names of India's first PM Jawaharlal Nehru and first President Rajendra Prasad. Nehru objected to Prasad's visit for the consecration of Somnath temple, which was destroyed by foreign invaders and renovated by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the PM told the gathering ahead of elections in the state on December 7.
