NEW DELHI: The Congress on Monday cited RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's remarks on the reservation to allege that the "anti-Dalit-backward face" of the RSS-BJP has been exposed.

The attack by the opposition party came a day after Bhagwat said there should be a conversation in a harmonious atmosphere between those in favour of reservation and those against it.

"Attack on the rights of the poor, trampling on constitutional rights, snatching the rights of Dalits-backwards. This is the real BJP agenda," Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.

"The anti-Dalit-backward face of the RSS-BJP has been exposed. The conspiracy to end reservation for the poor and the policy of changing the Constitution have been uncovered," he said in a series of tweets in Hindi.
