RSS a school of patriotism, says BJPOctober 11th, 2011 - 9:02 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Oct 11 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday slammed Congress leader Digvijay Singh for raising questions on the credibility of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and said the Sangh was a “school of patriotism”.
BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said a campaign has been launched agianst the Sangh as if it was a terror organisation.
“It is a school of patriotism…Sangh had also fought against Emergency,” Javadekar said.
He said the Sangh did not have to “learn lessons in patriotism from Digvijay Singh”.
Digvijay Singh Tuesday asked Anna Hazare why he was opposing the Congress when parliament has supported his demands on the Lokpal bill.
The Congress general secretary said in an open letter to Hazare that his statements about not being aware of the RSS support to his movement raised doubts about his credibility.
