While the BJP raised questions about his religion and accused Gandhi of fooling people with his temple visits, Congress blamed the ruling party for the fake image.
Rahul's today's visit to Somnath Temple comes at a time when there are no elections due in Gujarat in near future and it is being seen as a move to thwart the BJP's campaign to term him as a seeker of Hindu votes.
Gandhi has been using one-liner laced with satire to target the BJP in recent months.

Briefing reporters about the first meeting of the party's highest decision-making body chaired by Rahul Gandhi, party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that members recalled the struggle party had done in the years it had been out of power including between 1977 and 1980 and between 1999 and 2004.
"'If BJP had a film franchise it would be called Lie Hard", he tweeted. He had alleged that whether it was Mr Modi's poll promise of putting "15 lakh each in peoples" bank accounts, the 2G spectrum case or Mr Modi's development model, "one by one the lies are coming out". "To gain power by all means, would you indulge in such cheap barbs?"
On Saturday, after offering prayers at Somnath, the newly elected Congress president will reach Ahmedabad, where he will meet party leaders from four regions of the state one after the other from 1:15 pm to 5:15 pm.
Ahead of Gujarat elections, the Congress president spent over 20 days campaigning extensively for his party.
