Gadkkari said, "I do not mind if we even lose at times. But, even at tough times, the Sangh has spoken about Congress in a subdued tone."
Gadkari, who has often been accused of not standing by the RSS when Congress launched the 'saffron terror' campaign, described the Sangh as a democratic organisation and said, "In spite of nearly 85 years of service to the nation, when it comes to the Sangh's image before media and many people, it is a matter of image vs reality."
Launching a scathing attack on the Congress, he added, "The Congress has blackened its face in the 2G spectrum scam and now more details about the Bofors case are emerging... They are now trying to divert attention by pointing fingers at RSS time and again."
Speaking about the Samjhauta blast probe, he said, "First, there was talk of involvement of outsiders in the Samjhauta Express blast, as stated by America too. Now, saying another thing... it is all vote-bank politics."
He was speaking at the launch of Mumbai-based Ratan Sharda's book, 'Secrets of RSS: Demystifying the Sangh. The 264-page book covers the history, philosphy and organisational structure of the Sangh.
