Did Rahul Gandhi just escape yet another defamation case from the BJP and RSS?

In what appears to be a close shave with yet another defamation case, Congress President Rahul Gandhi seems to have barely managed to save himself. As reported by India Today, in Rahul Gandhi’s maiden Congress Working Committee meeting as Congress President, which excluded veterans like Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath, Rahul Gandhi was heard criticizing the BJP and the RSS. India Today reports that the speech may have been blasphemous enough for the Congress to have deleted it within minutes of it being uploaded on Twitter and YouTube.

As per reports, Rahul Gandhi was heard criticizing the BJP and RSS but at the same time, he even asked Congress to learn from them. India Today reports that Rahul Gandhi said that whenever BJP comes to power, thousands of institutions affiliated to the RSS mushroom in the states. He further said that the BJP steals money from the state coffers and passes it on to thousands of RSS-affiliated institutions. He reportedly named Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh and alleged that money was being stealthily donated to RSS’ institutions like Shishu Mandir Schools. He said that thousands of RSS institutions run on government money.

He further added that Congress leaders should ‘learn’ from the BJP and RSS modus operandi. He said that the right-wing cadres have infiltrated the government institutions and that Congress will also have to do that. He said that the tribal votes have swung towards the BJP because they went to them and ‘brainwashed’ them. Hence, Congress would have to win them back.

Within minutes of uploading the video, the same was deleted across all platforms. Perhaps Rahul Gandhi didn’t want yet another defamation case against him. During the run-up to the 2014 elections, an aggressive Rahul had made some rather controversial statements. He had said that people from RSS had killed Mahatma Gandhi. Later during the trial, Rahul Gandhi made a U-Turn. He told the Supreme Court that he did not blame the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi on the RSS. He further said his remark had been misinterpreted by the RSS worker who filed the initial complaint against him. His U-Turn came as a rude shock to his social media warriors who had backed Rahul’s decision of not apologising and settling the case.
