Congress President slams RSS chief Bhagwat over remarks on Army; RSS defends it as ‘misrepresented’
With elections ahead, Congress president Rahul Gandhi accused the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat of disrespecting the army and those who have laid down their lives for the country.
Gandhi slammed Bhagwat over his remarks that the RSS could “prepare” military personnel faster than the army itself.
Congress chief even demanded that the RSS chief makes an apology over his remarks insulting the Army.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “The RSS Chief’s speech is an insult to every Indian, because it disrespects those who have died for our nation. It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it. Shame on you Mr Bhagwat, for disrespecting our martyrs and our Army. #ApologiseRSS”.
It need be recalled that it was during an address of the RSS workers meet in Bihar on Sunday that Bhagwat said that RSS will prepare military personnel within three days which the Army would do in 6-7 months.
He added that this is the capability of the outfit even if the outfit is not a military one.
The RSS has, however, clarified that its chief’s speech has been misrepresented. >
