Amarinder’s statement against RSS an attempt to please Gandhi family: Tarun Chugh
Says such comments about a nationalist organization were not expected of a Chief Minister who has also served in the Army
Chandigarh: Reacting strongly to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s unnecessary and uncalled for comment against the RSS, BJP has termed it as Amarinder’s attempt to please Gandhi family.
Terming Capt Amarinder as ‘a highly sophisticated sycophant of the first order, Tarun Chugh, the national secretary of the BJP, said the Chief Minister always remains on the lookout of an opportunity to prove himself more loyal than the king, forgetting that in fact, he himself was a king.
“It is very unfortunate that Amarinder has chosen to pass unnecessary remarks about a cultural and nationalist organization which has always remained in forefront to help the needy and assist the Army in whatever way it could,” he said.
Chugh said such comments about a nationalist organization were not expected of a Chief Minister who has also served in the Army.
“I wonder, how and why Capt Amarinder, who claims to know history well, has chosen to forget RSS’ active assistance to Indian Army in 1962 war against China,” Chugh said adding that the then Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru had invited Swayamsewaks to take part in Republic Day Parade in 1963 to acknowledge RSS’ contribution.
The BJP leader said that the BJP was proud of Indian Army but it was also a fact that RSS has never turned its back whenever any assistance was required.
“Capt Amarinder should have and should refrain from passing unfounded, unnecessary and derogatory remarks about the RSS, which is apolitical organization,” Chugh said
