New Delhi, Aug 24 (IANS) The BJP on Friday attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi for comparing the RSS with the Muslim Brotherhood and accused him of possessing hatred against the current government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The kind of words and thinking that Gandhi is using in foreign countries is very saddening,” Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sambit Patra told media.
“Have you taken a contract against the ‘idea called India’, its culture and the Indian government,” Patra questioned.
The BJP leader said that what Gandhi has done in UK is “unforgiveable”.
“Muslim Brotherhood is a declared terrorist organisation in many countries. And you compared the Muslim Brotherhood with the BJP and the RSS. India wants to know if it is being ruled by a terrorist organisation. Have the 125 crore people of country voted for a terrorist party?” he asked.
The BJP leader was referring to Gandhi’s remarks about BJP and RSS while addressing the students in the Strategic Studies Institute in London.
Earlier in the day, Gandhi in UK said, “We are fighting an organisation called the RSS, which is trying to change the nature of India. There is no other organisation in India that wants to capture India’s institutions.”
Attacking the Congres leader, Patra said, “Rahulji you have no maturity and understanding of India. You have no facets. The only quality you possess is hatred against the BJP, the RSS and Modi,” he said.
“In 2013, a year before the elections, Congress leaders accused the BJP and RSS of running terror camps,” he said.
“Why such hatred towards democracy?” the BJP leader questioned. He also said that the Congress in 2013 called the opposition terrorists and today “they are describing the government as terrorists”.
He said the current BJP government follows the principle of ‘Sabka saath, sabka vikas’.
“Rahulji must apologise to the people of the country,” Patra said.
