New Delhi: The Congress Party on Thursday said that Former President and Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee has shown the mirror of the truth of India’s pluralism to RSS.
Addressing the Press conference after Pranab Mukherjee’s speech at the RSS headquarters, Congress Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said “Shri Pranab Mukherjee has reminded the RSS of the history of India. He taught the RSS that India’s beauty lies in its tolerance for difference ideas, religions and languages.”

In an issued statement, Congress asked a series of question to the right-wing organisation that is RSS ready to give up its prejudice vis-a-vis ‘women, Dalits, backward, minorities and the deprived’? Is RSS ready to ‘adapt’ to India’s foundational values of pluralism, tolerance, non-violence, secularism, and diversity?
‘Shri Mukherjee also reminded the present Modi government of following ‘Rajdharna’ founded upon our diversity, non-voilence multiculturalism and assimilation,” added Surjewala.
The Congress leader further added that “let the RSS and BJP publically commit today to change its orientation, thought process and path and accept the sagacious advise of their guest today. We await a reply.”
