Cong slams MP govt for RSS decision
Bhopal, Sep 14 (UNI) Slamming the Madhya Pradesh government for lifting a ban on its officials from participating in RSS activities, the Congress today warned of a statewide agitation.
Describing the regime's decision as 'lethal' for Madhya Pradesh, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jamuna Devi said, ''The Chief Minister (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) has surrendered to the Sangh and pro-Hindu organisations. The decision will vitiate communal harmony and anarchy will prevail due to deterioration of the law and order situation.'' Alleging that the RSS was globally viewed as a ''terrorist'' organisation, the tribal leader added that weapons display and armed members were examples of such ''militancy.'' Ms Devi demanded that the government reconsider the decision.
''The regime has violated the Constitution's secular tenets. The Chief Minister is wrong in saying the Sangh is a socio-cultural organisation. The RSS has a mask covering its political face,'' said Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee President Subhash Yadav.
MPCC spokesman Manak Agrawal alleged that the government was attempting to plunge the state into a communal frenzy on the lines of what happened in neighbouring Gujarat.
