‘Congress will end culture of Government officials associating with RSS and political parties ‘

Indore, Nov 11 : Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram assured that if Congress party will come to power in Madhya Pradesh and it will end the practice of Governments servants associating with RSS which is in fact a political party .

“RSS is a political organisation. If Congress party in MP in their manifesto has said it will put an end to this practice, I see nothing wrong with that. Governments servants as long as they are working in govt shouldn’t openly associate with a political party,” Chidambaram said.

Defending the Congress’s manifesto promising to restrict RSS shakhas in government offices in Madhya Pradesh, Chidambaram said that there was nothing wrong in it and maintained that governments servants, as long as they are working, shouldn’t openly associate with a political party.

The Congress veteran made these remarks in Indore in the poll-bound Madhya Pradesh.

Former Union Minister P Chidambaram has said that his party hopes to form state-wise coalitions ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha polls and remains confident of forging an electoral alliance with like-minded parties.

The former Finance Minister said that if the Congress-led coalition wins in each state, it would ensure the victory of the Grand Alliance or the ‘Mahagathbandhan’ in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

”We hope to form state-wise coalitions and if the coalition wins in each state then that is the victory of the ‘Mahagathbandhan’. We are confident that we can form coalitions in each state,” Chidambaram said.


Chidambaram had alleged that the BJP and RSS were trying to impose autocratic rule in the nation and their main aim was to destroy the federal system and build a Hindu nation.

He said the BJP-led government at the Centre wanted to impose the ideology of ‘one history, one language and one living style’, which was a dangerous threat to Indian culture and to the nation’s hallmark of unity in diversity.
