LUCKNOW: Reacting to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's remarks that the DNA of all Indians is the same, BSP supremo Mayawati on Monday said that it did not get down well as there is difference in what the Sangh Parivar, BJP and the government says as compared to their actions.
"RSS chief Bhagwat's remarks that the DNA of all Indians is the same and violence is against Hindutva at a programme in Ghaziabad on Sunday is not going down well as there is a difference in the words and actions of the Sangh, BJP and the government that is there for everyone to see," Mayawati said in a statement in Hindi here.
She also said the RSS chief's statement was like "Muh me Ram, bagal me chhuri", a Hindi proverb that roughly translates to showing a two-faced nature. Bhagwat is cursing the country's politics by calling it divisive but that is not right, the former chief minister said.
She added that it is the result of the blind support of RSS to BJP and its governments that the poison of casteism, political hatred and communal violence is plaguing normal life. The BSP president said Bhagwat had said "big things" in his statement in Ghaziabad.
"Without the cooperation and support of the RSS, the existence of the BJP is nothing. Why is the RSS not able to get what it wants implemented by the BJP and its governments?" she added.
In his address at an event 'Hindustan First Hindustani Best' organised by the Muslim Rashtriya Manch in Ghaziabad on Sunday, Bhagwat had said that the DNA of all Indians is the same and those asking Muslims to leave the country cannot call themselves Hindus.
