basavaraj bommai: Siddaramaiah is trying to hide Congress government’s withdrawal of lawsuits against PFI by calling for a ban on RSS, says Bommai
“He (Siddaramaiah) has nothing to question the banning of PFI. He (as CM) had withdrawn the charges against PFI, now to hide it, he is asking for the banning of RSS, but is unable to say why RSS should be banned,” Bommai said in response to a question.
RSS is a patriotic organization, which works for oppressed, poor and orphaned children, and is at the forefront in case of calamities or floods. They stir up patriotic feelings in the country, he said.
“To call for the banning of such an organization is truly unfortunate, Siddaramaiah should not have sunk to such a low level,” he added.
As the Union government imposes a ban on the PFI and several of its associates for their alleged terrorist activities, Siddaramaiah has called for similar action against the RSS, alleging that they too are disrupting the peace in society.
The former chief minister had on Thursday denied the BJP’s accusation that he withdrew charges against PFI workers when he was chief minister.
Meanwhile, Bommai said he did not wish to comment on developments within Congress regarding the election of its national president, saying it was an internal party matter and that perhaps the elections were taking place there for the first time, certain developments were taking place.
