Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today accused him of trying to kill democracy in the country and claimed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was doing the same in West Bengal.
“Modiji is trying to crush democracy in the country. He has brought down Congress governments in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand in the most arbitrary manner,” he said at a joint election rally here with Left Front leaders.
Alleging that Modi is attempting to spread the RSS ideology, he said, “Vichardhara ki baat kare to poore Hindustan me ek vichardhara ho, soch ki baat kare to ek hi soch ho, Nagpur (RSS headquarters) ki soch poore Hindustan me dalna chahta hai (There should be one point of view; one way of thinking; the thinking of Nagpur is being imposed on the entire country)”. Addressing Congress and Left Front workers on a sultry day on the campaign trail for the upcoming Assembly elections, Gandhi alleged that Banerjee was doing in Bengal the same thing that Modi was in the country.
