Mumbai | Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday made a controversial statement while responding to a question on RSS invitation received by Congress President Rahul Gandhi. He said, “There is no question of visiting the RSS headquarters. RSS is a poisonous ideology and there is no question of testing the poison.” He further added that the RSS never hoisted the Tricolour until recently.

Commenting on Sharad Pawar’s claim of parties with maximum MPs getting to select the Prime Minister candidate, he remarked, “Bakari Eid me bachenge toh Muharram me naachenge” (One will celebrate in Muharram if he is saved in Bakari Eid).

Responding to the question about the alliance with Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Kharge coined the idea of a Sanmanjanak alliance. He said Sanmanjanak alliance means wherever we seem to win we will field our candidate and wherever they (NCP) seem to win their candidate will be fielded. There is no 50:50 formula,” he added.

Kharge further informed that the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee will start a Jana Sangharsh yatra from Kolhapur in the coming days, which will travel to Sangli, Satara, Pandarpur, Pune and Western Maharashtra. The second phase will start from North Maharasthra’s Faizpur and will end in Shirdi. The third phase will begin from Vidharbha while the last phase will over the Konkan region.

Claiming the arrest of the human right activist to be an undeclared emergency, Kharge said, the government is trying to crush rationalist thoughts, human rights are being violated today. He added that if anyone speaks in their favour, they are looked at with suspicion.

When asked about the arrest of people belonging to Sanathan Sanstha, Kharge alleged that in the name of Sanatan Dharma, two intellectuals from Maharashtra and Karnataka were killed. We all know who was behind them. Rather than punishing them, they are being protected. Questioning the government Kharge asked, “Why is there a delay in catching them, identifying them, arresting them?”
