BJP-RSS working towards dividing country: Rahul Gandhitext_fields
New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked BJP and RSS, saying that they are working towards dividing the country and they do not care about the sorrow and pain of the people of India.
"The BJP-RSS only want power and can do anything to get power. For power, they will burn Manipur, they will burn the entire country," Gandhi said while addressing a Youth Congress program virtually.
“Be it Haryana, Punjab, or Uttar Pradesh, they will sell the entire country as they only want power," Gandhi alleged, adding that for the Congress, this is the fight.
"On one side, you are sitting and you have a love for the country and whenever the country is hurt or its citizens are hurt, you will also get hurt and you will be sad. But they do not have any such feelings in their heart. The RSS-BJP people do not feel any pain," he further said.
The excerpts of Gandhi’s speech were shared on Congress Party’s official Twitter handle.
The opposition led by the Congress has been protesting seeking a statement from the Prime Minister on the situation in ethnic strife-torn Manipur, followed by a full-fledged discussion on it.
