RSS and Bajrang Dal are communal forces: Gogoi

The RSS and the Bajrang Dal were not extremist organisations but communal forces which were bent on disturbing peace in the state, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said.

In a statement here, Gogoi said he did not compare the RSS and the Bajrang Dal with extremist outfits ULFA and NDFB contrary to reports in a section of the media.

“RSS and Bajrang Dal are not extremist organisations, but communal forces out to disturb peace in the state,” the chief minister said.

Both these communal forces have a tacit understanding with the opposition All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), he alleged.
