Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who frequently targeted the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, said on Thursday that he will no longer be called the RSS Sangh Parivar. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has tweeted, ‘I believe it is not right to call RSS and related organization as Sangh Parivar – there are women in the family, respect for the elderly, a sense of compassion and affection – which in RSS Is not. Now RSS will not be called Sangh Parivar!
Let me tell you that while addressing a virtual program of Cornell University of America earlier this month, Rahul Gandhi attacked the RSS fiercely. During a dialogue with former Chief Economic Advisor of India, Kaushik Basu, Rahul Gandhi alleged that the RSS used the schools it runs to carry forward a particular idea about the world like the fundamentalist Islamic seminary in Pakistan. .
I believe it is not right to call RSS and related organization as Sangh Parivar – there are women in the family, respect for the elderly, a sense of compassion and affection – which is not in the RSS.
Earlier in the month of January while addressing an election meeting in Tamil Nadu, Rahul Gandhi had said that the BJP’s parent organization cannot decide the future of Tamil Nadu and it will be decided by the people of the state and its youth. Even before this, Rahul Gandhi has been targeting the RSS on many occasions and has been attacking the central government.
