D Raja, General Secretary of the Communist Party in India, recently in a declaration to the media condemned the statement made by RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat. Bhagwant addressing the Vijayadashmi function of the RSS at Reshimbagh ground in Maharashtra's Nagpur city on Tuesday, October 8, stated that ‘lynchings is a foreign concept’. He further added that these incidents of lynchings are used to defame a country’s reputation. Raja, condemned the statement made by Bhagwat, and furthermore, went on to criticise the RSS and BJP.
“This statement of Mohan Bhagwat once again proves that the BJP Government, headed by Narendra Modi, is a Government really controlled by RSS. It is the RSS which directs what the Government should do, not do. RSS is desperate to implement its agenda, the Hindutva agenda, using the present Government. It is what one should understand from the statement made by Mohan Bhagwat,” D Raja said in a statement.
Mohan Bhagwat, the Chief of RSS, called 'lynchings a foreign concept'. He also praised the Prime Minister for the abrogation of Article 370. The RSS chief also spoke about the importance of being united. In his speech, he highlighted the importance of staying united even with variances. He stated that a society's power lies in staying united. Furthermore, he added that everyone should live in harmony and not defy the law of the state.
“This tradition is found in other religions. In our country, we find the tradition of brotherhood. In ancient India, Buddha stopped people of two villages from attacking each other over water issue. This is our tradition. But what is happening is small incidents are being played up for convenience. These issues require law and order agencies to intervene,” Bhagwat said in a statement.
Speaking about the abrogation of Article 370, he added, “The entire country wanted Article 370 to be abrogated. This new government's first big decision was to infuse development and prosperity in all parts of the country and Jammu and Kashmir was included in that,” he added. Through this, the Government has shaped what the people of India wished for a long time."
