Cong blames RSS to please minorities: MP

MP Pralhad Joshi said on Monday that Congress leaders blame the RSS just to appease the minorities.

"Congress president Rahul Gandhi should stop the politics of dividing society that is happening in the state, if he is a mature leader," he said.

Addressing mediapersons at the launch of the BJP's digital publicity vehicle here, he said ever since the time of Jawaharlal Nehru, Congress leaders had tried to curb the RSS, but the people had curbed the Congress itself.

Though the BJP is in favour of reservation, Congress spreads baseless rumours in this regard, he said.

Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jagadish Shettar observed that Mathe Mahadevi's statement in support of the Congress had revealed the true intention of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on the issue of granting separate religion status for Lingayats.
