HYDERABAD: Alleging that the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre as well as the TRS government in the state are adopting similar policies to stifle the voice of the minorities, Dalits and girijans, state Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy asked his party workers to fight for protecting the fundamental rights of the weaker sections of the society. He said both BJP and TRS were chips off the same block.
Addressing party cadre on the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday, Reddy said the RSS had opposed the Quit India Movement and read out a few excerpts from history books in support of his argument. “The RSS did not participate in the Quit India Movement.
VD Savarkar, while addressing the 24th session of the Hindu Mahasabha at Kanpur, announced that he decided to cooperate with the British rulers. Syama Prasad Mookherjee, the second-in-command of the Hindu Mahasabha, was also not in the forefront of the movement,” the TPCC chief alleged. “It is very unfortunate that the leaders, who had opposed India’s freedom struggle, are today being hailed as nationalists by the BJP and RSS,” he said.
