Congress demands removal of Deputy Advocate General of Madhya Pradesh for sharing an anti-Congress video

The Congress' anti-RSS manifesto isn't surprising considering previous statements made by senior leaders of the party. During his foreign tours, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had compared the RSS with the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Congress party has demanded the removal of the Deputy Advocate General of Madhya Pradesh, Pushyamitra Bhargava, for sharing a video on social media where he can be seen criticizing the Congress’ anti-RSS manifesto. They said the video violated the poll code in effect in the state.

Congress manifesto hurt the Advocate General deeply, he said. The manifesto promised a revocation of the relaxation given to government employees to attend RSS shakhas.

“I have been hurt with the Congress’s manifesto which pledges that holding of RSS shakhas in government premises in Madhya Pradesh would be banned. Besides, the pledge mentioned the ban on government staffers from going to RSS shakhas. This amounts to violating the fundamental rights of the government staffers”, said the Advocate General.

Bhargava also appealed to the voters to not vote for anti-national forces. He stated, “Such ban creates a fear among the citizens against government servants. I request the residents of Madhya Pradesh and young friends to exercise their franchise against anti-national forces by fulfilling their duty to organisation fostering nationalism.”

Bhargava told PTI that he had indeed uploaded the video. He added that he has approached the Election Commission on Saturday for taking action against Congress in this regard.

The Congress’ anti-RSS manifesto isn’t surprising considering previous statements made by senior leaders of the party. During his foreign tours, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had compared the RSS with the Muslim Brotherhood. We had speculated then that the Congress may be planning a crackdown on the organization. Congress leaders in Bihar have previously demanded a ban on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s entry in the state.

The Congress party has also alleged that Pakistan and RSS are on the “same page in propagating hatred, violence and division among people.” It is a bit contradictory considering senior leaders of the Congress party often praise Pakistan profusely. A senior leader had even stated in Pakistan that Narendra Modi needs to be removed from power for talks between the two countries to proceed.

The Congress had allegedly tried to frame RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat in its pursuit of the ‘Saffron terror’ narrative as well. The Congress perceives the continued existence of the RSS as a moral threat to its political relevance. Thus, it’s only natural that they might try to attack the RSS through legislative means if they return to power.
