What does poinitff means?? it mean Pope
Lets us look what does Pope means?? it says “the Bishop of Rome as head of the Roman Catholic Church”
Why did Rahul Gandhi chose to Pontiff instead of Lingayat Seer or any other Noun to address swamiji ? what was the reason to use Nouns which describes Christian religious heads? Many Twitteratis puzzled & questioned Rahul on why he chose to address swamiji as Pontiff
