Sonia Gandhi New Delhi, Nov 11 (IANS) Congress workers have the right to register their opposition against former Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief K.S. Sudarshan’s derogatory remarks against party chief Sonia Gandhi, a party spokesperson said here Thursday.

“If after the remarks, Congress workers get agitated and do something, I will not be surprised. But, Congress workers have been asked to maintain peace and told that they have the right to organise protests in their states,” said Congress spokesperson Janardhan Dwivedi.

“We seek the support of all countrymen, media and enlightened people to just sit and think whether such language and rude and baseless allegations should be made against anyone in public life,” he said.

Sudarshan made the remarks against Gandhi at a public function in Bhopal. Congress MPs raised a furore over the matter Thursday in parliament, leading to adjournment of both houses till Monday.
