While interacting with the media K S Sudarshan,the former Sarsanghchalak of RSS called Sonia Gandhi an American CIA agent and accused her of plotting assassinations of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and his mother Indira Gandhi . Sudarshan claimed that Rajiv Gandhi had some doubts about Sonia and he was thinking of separation. While holding her responsible for the killing of her husband, RSS chief K S Sudarshan asked why the Z plus security was not provided to him. He further asked why the probe is not being done to find out the truth.
He said that Sonia’s father was in jail at the time of her birth in 1944 and she misinterpreted her date of birth as 1946. He claims that all these reveleations has been done by a congressman and he refused to divulge the name of the congressman.
He made these remarks while condemning the government and ruling Congress party for character assassination of RSS leaders and equating RSS with the SIMI, a banned extremist outfit.
Congress demanded an apology from former RSS chief K S Sudarshan for his reported remarks against Sonia Gandhi and warned of criminal proceedings if he does not express regret. Congress General Secretary,Digvijay Singh strongly condemned the verbal attack. By making baseless charges against Sonia, only shown level of the RSS and the BJP, Singh said in a statement. The Congress General Secretary said that RSS Chief,Mohan Bhagwat and the BJP should tell people whether or not they agree with Sudarshan’s anti-Sonia remarks made on wednesday.
The Congress has asked all its state units to launch a protest against the Sangh parivar. “We want a strong protest, strong enough to ensure that such outfits don’t open their mouths for such comments in the future,” general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said. Dwivedi asked Congress workers not to indulge in violence, but warned that “such vulgar and untruthful remarks can incite our partymen”. “Nobody should blame the Congress if any untoward development takes place,” the chief party spokesperson added.
He appeared inciting partymen to react violently as he went on to read out all Sudarshan said. He reproduced the details. His statement disowning any violence by Congress workers and his call for a strong reactions strengthened this perception.
“We seek the support of all countrymen, media and enlightened sections in deciding whether such a language should be permitted in public life,’’ the Congress general secretary said.
The RSS distanced itself from the diatribe, saying it didn’t represent its views. “Only Sudarshan can clarify why he spoke like that,” Sangh spokesperson Ram Madhav said. “We are concerned about the reports sourced to him.” He said RSS had never discussed such matters (contents of Mr Sudarshan’s remarks) at any time or at any level, nor does it possess any such information. Sangh sources said Sudarshan had of late been meeting known Sonia-baiters. “He is very impressionable and must have been influenced by them,” a source said.
The BJP said the Congress chief was a “democratically elected leader” and “chairperson of a ruling coalition” and deserved “respect. “Respect him (the former RSS chief), but I don’t agree with his statement,’’ Opposition leader Sushma Swaraj told newspersons.
Subramanian Swamy, Janata Party Prsident, recently in an article titled “Known Sonia Gandhi” had attacked Sonia Gandhi and it appears that Sudarshan statements are taken from it.
