Yogi was among the star campaigners for the elections in Gujarat and he often attacked Rahul Gandhi in his speeches calling the latter's visits to temples as a mere "pretence".
Criticising Rahul, Yogi had said the Congress scion does not even know how to sit properly in a temple.
The fireband leader had also accused the Congress of trying to divide the people of Gujarat on communal lines during election campaigning.
