Union mins attack Nitish over RSS-free India jibe
Two Union ministers on Monday attacked Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over his call for ‘RSS-free’ India, saying that the Janata Dal-United (JD-U) leader never spoke against organisations like Simi, ISIS and LeT, which spread terror and want to break the country.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said Kumar had no qualms in joining hands with a party that ruined the country and warned public against such “casteist, communal and corrupt” forces who are out to stop the country’s growth.
Naidu said while the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) political adversaries want to have an ‘RSS-free’ India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants the country to be free from poverty, corruption and unemployment.
IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said: “Nitishji, RSS is a great organisation committed to India. Why do you never speak against Simi, ISIS and LeT who spread terror and want to break India.”
Meanwhile, Kumar on Monday said he had given the call of “RSS-mukt” Bharat as it believes in dividing the country on caste and communal lines and it is “confusing” people through “rumours”.
