New Delhi, Aug 26 : Taking a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s statement on RSS and Gandhi murder, the RSS wanted him to clarify as to which statement he would ‘stick to’- the one which he made at the public rally in 2014 or the one he submitted to the Supreme Court?
The RSS also questioned the intent of Rahul’s statement. “Which words he stands with in the affidavit he filed in the Supreme Court or the lie he uttered in a public speech,” RSS Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya wanted to know.
The Congress leader had on Wednesday told the Supreme Court on that he “never accused the RSS as an institution for the killing of Mahatma Gandhi. But On Thursday in a dramatic way Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “I will never stop fighting the hateful and divisive agenda of the RSS. I stand by every single word I said.”
Taking head-on on social networking website twitter the RSS sought unconditional apology from Congress Vice-president.
“Do Rahul Gandhi and his party have respect for truth to give such an apology in writing and guarantee that he or his party will never utter lie in the future,” Vaidya asked.
Questioning the credibility of Rahul Gandhi over his controversial remarks the rulling BJP asked whether he would be able to accept the allegations that the grand old party was involved in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
“If Rahul Gandhi’s logic is taken to its logical conclusion then can we say that the Congress is responsible for the 1984 massacre of Sikhs in this country? In 1984 we are aware that Congress leaders were involved in massacre of Sikhs. But can we say that the Congress was responsible and it was a part of the Congress?
Taking a jibe at the Congress vice-president, BJP spokesperson Sudesh Verma said “Gandhi says one thing in the court and something else outside”.
Meanwhile, BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy took pot-shot on Rahul Gandhi asking him to take retirement from politics. Making ‘U-turns’ on key issues of national importance is nature to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi .
In a scorching reply Swamy advised him to quit politics to save the grand old party’s future. “He is a major coward and making U-turns is his second nature. I think that he has absolutely no political future. I am not even sure if he tweeted it himself, it was probably someone from his office,” Swamy told ANI.
