Congress leader and chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs, Shashi Tharoor on Monday denounced Mohan Bhagwat’s controversial comment of creating an army within three days.
While talking to media the leader urged to keep army beyond politics.
Criticising Mohan Bhagwat he said, “Let us not compare a bunch of young people with bamboo sticks and khaki shorts to Army.”
While undermining the Army’s capacity to tackle border firing, Mohan Bhagwat while addressing at an RSS function in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar on Sunday had said “The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is not a military organisation, but we have discipline like the military. If the nation requires and the country’s Constitution allows, the RSS is ready to fight on the borders against the enemy”.
The RSS has the capacity to form an army within a few days to fight for the country, he had added.
