Priyanka Gandhi takes dig at Modi govt over RSS tweet

She cited an RSS tweet mentioning that all issues in society should be resolved through cordial dialogue to attack the government over its actions in Jammu and Kashmir


- Advertisment -

New Delhi: Taking a swipe at the BJP government, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday said either Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his dispensation no longer respect views of RSS that all issues should be resolved through “cordial dialogue” or they do not believe there is an “issue” in Jammu and Kashmir.

She cited an RSS tweet mentioning that all issues in society should be resolved through cordial dialogue to attack the government over its actions in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir was placed under an unprecedented security cover and curfew-like restrictions on 4 August, a day before the Centre revoked the state’s special status under Article 370 and divided it into two union territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

“So the RSS has declared in a tweet that all ‘issues in the society’ should be resolved through cordial dialogue?” the Congress general secretary said in a tweet.

“I suppose either Modiji and his government no longer respect the RSS’s views or they don’t believe that there is an ‘issue’ in Jammu and Kashmir. Interesting… ,” Priyanka Gandhi tweeted.

The tweet by the RSS that Priyanka Gandhi cited was of a statement by RSS Prachar Pramukh (Publicity Head) Arun Kumar on the organisation’s Chief Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks on reservation.

Kumar said in the statement that Bhagwat highlighted the importance of resolving all issues in society through cordial dialogue and had called upon everyone to exchange views on a sensitive issue like reservation, he added.

Recently, Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has alleged that the BJP scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir as the region is “dominated” by Muslims, a remark condemned by the ruling party as “provocative and irresponsible”.

The former union home and finance minister also alleged that the BJP-led NDA government would not have taken the bold decision had Jammu and Kashmir been a “Hindu-dominated” State.
