Nitish stands by

Submitted by Kumuda on Mon, 2016-04-18 13:54 Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said that his call for an RSS-free India was just his personal opinion, adding the Sangh's ideology is not in the nation's benefit. "This is my opinion, nothing else. It's my political view. The ideology of the RSS is not in benefit of the nation," he said. Addressing an event in Patna on Saturday, Kumar had mounted a counteroffensive against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his 'Congress-mukt Bharat' slogan and said all the non-BJP parties will have to come together to usher in a Sangh-free India. "Uniting against the BJP and its divisive ideology is the only way to save democracy," he added. He asserted that the country was heading towards a bipolar political divide with the BJP-RSS on one side and the rest on the other. (ANI)
