Cong leader praises RSS

published on November 10, 2012

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) obviously don’t need a character certificate from a Congress Member of Parliament. But a Congress MP praising the RSS is sure sacrilege for the party. And embarrassing too.

Statement of Congress MP Sajjan Singh Verma attacking the Congress culture has surely sent shockwaves in the party circles. Verma’s comments that Congress leaders hesitate to step out of A/C cars today and the party workers should ignore all leaders above 60 years have caused great discomfiture to the party. Referring to the disconnect the party has with common people today, he also added that the RSS is much better than the Congress party in this regard.

Addressing a workers meeting at Neemuch on Thursday, Sajjan Singh Verma said that while Congress leaders don’t venture out of their air-conditioned offices and cars, the RSS workers eat only ‘chana’ and work in the remote rural areas. After local media in Neemuch reported the story, the state Congress is running for shelter giving just one-liners as clarification.

Sajjan Singh Verma is a Congress MP from Madhya Pradesh representing Dewas constituency.

In July this year, another Congress leader had created a furor for praising Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Congress MP from Maharashtra and media tycoon Vijay Darda had praised Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi, terming him a “tiger.

“Modi’s commitment and dedication towards work bears resemblance to that of a tiger. he is also a e is also a tiger of Gujarat,” Darda said at a function in Ahmedabad where he was given an award for social service through the media. Following pressure from the party, he later retracted the statement.
