A day after telling the Supreme Court he had not blamed the RSS as an organisation for Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination but only people linked to it, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said he stands by his comments and will never stop fighting the “hateful and divisive agenda” of the RSS.
However, the BJP strongly reacted to Gandhi’s stand in the Supreme Court as also his tweet on the issue. It asked whether Rahul Gandhi can be blamed for the crimes committed by Congressmen.
“I will never stop fighting the hateful and divisive agenda of the RSS. I stand by every single word I said,” Rahul said in the tweet.
On August 24, Rahul Gandhi’s in an affidavit told the Supreme Court that the Congress leader had not blamed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as an institution for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, but the people associated with it.
“Rahul Gandhi never accused the RSS as (an) institution for the crime,” the Congress vice president’s counsel, Kapil Sibal, had told the court.
