Lucknow, Oct. 14 (ANI): Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi on Wednesday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was carrying forward the agenda of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which is to divide the nation and to seek power.
“It is the double speak of the party. Mr. Modi cannot wash his hands of. This is a Fascist ideology, supported by the BJP and Narendra Modi. He is carrying forward the agenda of RSS. The political agenda of the RSS is to divide the nation and to remain in power and to seek power and I think he is badly exposed,” Joshi told ANI here.
Joshi also said it is unfortunate, as Prime Minister Modi has washed his hands on the Dadri incident and said the central government has nothing to do with it.
“I think the Bharatiya Janata Party has a lot to answer for, Mr. Modi represents the RSS ideology and this is the double speak of the BJP and his leaders, they say something and they do something else,” she added.
Prime Minister Modi had in an interview to the Ananda Bazar Patrika said incidents like the Dadri lynching and the cancellation of the Ghulam Ali concert were sad and unfortunate, but added that the Centre could not be blamed for it. He also lashed out at the opposition, accusing them of practicing the ‘politics of polarization’. (ANI)
