Central ministers slam Nitish for anti-RSS comments

New Delhi: Criticising Nitish Kumar for his opposition to the RSS, central ministers Ravi Shankar Prasad and M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday said the Bihar chief minister would never speak against organisations like SIMI, IS and LeT “who spread terror and want to break India”.

“Nitish ji, RSS is a great organisation committed to India, why you never speak against SIMI, ISIS and LeT who spread terror and want to break India,” Communications and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad posted on Twitter.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Naidu also expressed similarr sentiments and ridiculed Nitish Kumar’s call to form a front against the BJP.

“Beware countrymen, the castiest, communal, corrupt are coming together. They want to stop growth of the country by forming an anti-BJP front,” Naidu posted.

He said they (Janata Dal-United) have no qualms in joining the party that ruled and ruined the country — in a veiled reference to the Congress.

“They formed a united front and became a divided front,” Naidu said, adding that the country has seen many such fronts.

“… they formed fronts, erected tents and left from the back,” he said.

Earlier on Monday in Patna, Nitish Kumar told the media after his weekly Janata Durbar that the RSS ideology was not good for the country and all non-BJP parties must unite against it.

“The RSS ideology is not good. It is not in the interest of the country and its people,” he said.
