New Delhi: The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has dared the UPA government to ban its parent Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
Describing RSS as the largest school to instill patriotism, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said in Thiruvananthapuram today, “it can ban the RSS and face the music again.”
RSS was temporarily banned on three earlier occasions, after the death of Mahatma Gandhi, during emergency and after the demolition of Babari mosque.
Union Ministers and Congress leaders have been openly accusing RSS for colluding with Swami Ramdev to topple the government. They even accused Ramdev of being an RSS agent.
He accused the UPA government of allowing separatist leaders to hold seminars in the capital, while muffling patriots and spiritual leaders for demanding transparency and accountability.
He condemned the police crackdown at the Ramlila ground on Saturday calling it an “act of political vendetta and an exhibition of arrogance of power.”
He also demanded apologies from the prime minister and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi for “violating the fundamental constitutional right of the citizens to peacefully protest against the policies and actions of the government.”
