The Congress party has vowed to ban ‘RSS shakhas’ inside government buildings or premises as one of the promises made in its election manifesto.
Ahead of the Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress party has vowed to ban “RSS shakhas” inside government buildings or premises as one of the promises made in its election manifesto.
Titled as “Vachan Patra”, the manifesto, released on Saturday, states if the Congress party comes to power, the ‘shakhas’ of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) would not be allowed inside the government buildings and its premises.
Kamal Nath, campaign committee chairman Jyotiraditya Scindia, former CM Digvijay Singh, former Union minister Suresh Pachauri, leader of opposition Ajay Singh and former PCC president Arun Yadav all came together to launch the manifesto and address the media.
Justifying the banning of RSS ‘shakhas’, Congress leader Mayank Agarwal told India Today TV: “The RSS is not a social organisation. It’s a part of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and it always works for profit for its party. It spreads communalism.”
