Attacking the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Congress leader Rahul Gandhi alleged that the right-wing organization is planting its people in every institution of the country.
In a video clip purportedly of a public interaction in Ladakh, he claimed that it is not Union cabinet ministers taking decisions, but RSS gentleman who is deciding what should happen in the ministry.
The RSS is widely considered to be an ideological offshoot of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the opposition has often drawn parallels between them.
The Congress leader alleged that the RSS is running everything in the country.
In a video of the former Congress chief, which is becoming increasingly viral on social media, he can be heard saying, “Even if you ask any minister in the central government, they will tell you that he is not actually running his ministry. The people appointed by the RSS are actually running these ministries and suggesting everything”.
Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav had earlier targeted the central government, alleging that the ideology of RSS-BJP is running the campaign of hoisting the national tricolor in every house, because they did not follow the initiative started by Mahatma Gandhi. Did not support the Quit India Movement.
Samajwadi Party, citing the statement of the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, had said that people belonging to the ideology of BJP and its parent organization RSS, opposed the Quit India Movement. Despite the fact that they are hoisting the national flag in every house.
He further said, BJP-RSS are now running a new Quit India movement where industrialists are allowed to leave the country after committing bank frauds.
Rahul Gandhi visits to Ladakh after the abrogation of Article 370 and formation of two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir.
He also interacted with the youths in a program organized in Leh. Rahul Gandhi said, India got independence in 1947 and strengthening the country is the constitution. A constitution is a set of rules..the way you implement the constitution is by setting up institutions that support the vision of the constitution. The BJP and the RSS are putting their men on key positions in the institutional set-up.
