Bhubaneswar: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today blasted the RSS saying it believes that there should be only one institution in the country. He said that the RSS is the mother-ship of the BJP.
While interacting with intellectuals as part of the ‘Town Hall’ programme during his day-long visit to the State here, Rahul when asked whether the Congress party believes in independence of institutions, attacked the RSS and BJP for“You currently have one institution which is called RSS which is the mother-ship of the BJP that believes that it should be the only institution in the country and the idea is to systematically penetrate all institutions,” said Gandhi.
“The Congress party has complete different view on how institutions support the country. We simply do not believe that institutions should not be independent. We believe that there is a link between India’s success, constitution, advancement and its institutional independence. So, we have always and will respect the institutions like the judiciary, Election Commission of India,” said Rahul.
