'Modi govt trying to impose RSS ideology'

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday hit out again at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that attack on journalists and the JNU show his regime wants the country to follow RSS ideology.

Rahul, who is on a two-day visit to Assam, said the RSS is “planting” its own ‘Pracharaks’ as vice chancellors of different universities.

“The way journalists were assaulted, it is absolutely wrong and we condemn it. They are planting RSS in every university. They are suppressing the voice of Indian students, but we will not let it happen. We will fight it out .They want to suppress the voice of the youth of the country,” he said while interacting with reporters on the sidelines of a rally in Sivsagar. 

Rahul’s rally was attended by thousands of Congress supporters from various districts of Upper Assam. It was a great show of strength for the ruling Congress after the BJP launched a high-pitched election campaign by Modi and party president Amit Shah.

“They are trying to suppress the voice of the youth — be it in JNU, in Hyderabad, Lucknow and other places, Modi has failed to fulfill his promises,” Rahul said.He said Modi has failed in many fronts.

“He (Modi) promised to contain price rise of essential commodities when he came here before the Lok Sabha polls,” he said.
