CM, RSS in crosshairs2 min read
Patna: On the third day of his ongoing Samvidhan Bachao Nyay Yatra in Kishanganj Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Prasad Yadav chose to attack the RSS and chief minister Nitish Kumar over their comments.
Addressing a handsome crowd at Muslim-dominated Kochadhaman, Janta Hatt Maidan in Kishanganj, around 400km east of Patna, the RJD leader slammed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat over his battle-ready comment.
Bhagwat while addressing an RSS meeting in Muzaffarpur on Sunday had said that the swayamsevaks could be battle ready in two to three days “if the country needs” them “and the Constitution and laws permit”.
“Why doesn’t Mohan Bhagwat send his swayamsevaks to Doklam? Why (are they) hiding in a hole? The Chinese military infiltrates our country and Pakistan is indulging in cross-border firing everyday,” Tejashwi said.
He alleged that by issuing such comments, Bhagwat has insulted the Indian Army. “Send your nikkar (in shorts) gang to Doklam and India-Pakistan border or apologise for your comment. I dare you to name a single swayamsevak who has become a martyr for the country or any of their family members. Swayamsevaks have no contribution in getting India Independent. Ra-ther they were more interested in keeping the country enslaved,” Tejashwi alleged.
Bhagalpur MP Bulo Mandal, RJD state vice-president Tanveer Hasan, Baisi MLA Abdus Subhan, Barari MLA Neeraj Kumar and Keoti MLA Faraz Fatmi accompanied the former deputy chief minister.
Tejashwi also took digs at Nitish by dubbing him a chief minister of the Sangh for supporting Bhagwat’s remarks.
“The chief minister of Bihar has become the chief minister of the Sangh and I will ask Mohan Bhagwat to send Nitish ji to Doklam as well. The person who earlier used to talk about Sangh Mukt Bharat has now become the advocate of Sangh Yukt Bharat. He does not have any stand,” Tejashwi said.
In his 40-minute speech, Tejashwi slammed Nitish for saying “he knew that the Grand Alliance government would not survive for more than one-and-a-half years”.
Tejashwi said: “This is what I was telling since the beginning that Paltu Chacha (Turncoat Uncle) had this plan (of leaving the alliance) in his mind from day one. The 67-year-old man should have some shame that he made a 28-year-old youth an excuse to hide his misdeeds to save the chair of the CM. Chacha you should have left like a man.”
