Karnataka: Congress president Rahul Gandhi today accused the (RSS) Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh of “planting” its people in every ministry in order to cripple democratic institutions. The National Democratic Alliance’s ministers are not operating freely because RSS has taken hold of them, the Congress president said as he met with businessmen at Kalaburagi, 640 km from Bengaluru.
Note Banned Idea Given by RSS
Rahul said the overnight note ban on November 2016 was an idea given by a “particular ideologue” of the RSS to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Do you know where the idea of note-bandi (note ban) came from? It was not RBI (Reserve Bank of India), it was not (Finance Minister) Arun Jaitley, it was not an officer in the Finance Ministry,” Mr Gandhi said.
The particular ideologue of the RSS. Now you imagine the RSS places an idea into the Prime Minister’s mind and the Prime Minister launches that idea, Said Rahul Gandhi.
