Rahul to con­tinue fight against RSS

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - HT Cor­re­spon­dent let­ters@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Congress vi­cepres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi said on Thurs­day he stood by his re­marks that the Rashtriya Swayam­se­vak Sangh, the rul­ing BJP’s ide­o­log­i­cal men­tor, is re­spon­si­ble for Ma­hatma Gandhi’s as­sas­si­na­tion.

“I will never stop fight­ing the hate­ful & di­vi­sive agenda of the RSS. I stand by every sin­gle word I said,” he tweeted and shared a video in which he blames “RSS men” for the as­sas­si­na­tion of the Ma­hatma. He made his stand clear as media re­ports sug­gested he al­legedly re­tracted his re­marks when he told the Supreme Court on Wed­nes­day he didn’t blame the RSS as an in­sti­tu­tion, but some peo­ple as­so­ci­ated with the Hindu group. An RSS man has filed a defama­tion case against him for his re­marks. Congress leader Digvi­jaya Singh tweeted: “No U-Turn by Rahul Gandhi on RSS. He stands by what he said.”
