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.

RSS ‘shakhas’ refer to the office of the RSS workers for regular meetings, activities, and exercises.

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.”

  1. Another doomed to fail initiative by Congress. Its amazing, for a party which started the political movement leading to India’s independence to stoop to such levels. To accuse RSS as part of BJP is obviously sour grapes. No organisation should use a government premises for political means and the rule must apply to all such outfits. To start with JNU should stop the students to be anti Modi and Pro Pakistan, mosques should be monitored for inciting some of the believers to act against the good of the nation or politically align to certain party …. the list can go on. What desperation for Congress when nothing is left for them to woo the voter unless the anit-Hindu vote bank is the only one they are counting!
