Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Monday used the “termite” analogy to target Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ideological mentor of the BJP, who he said is harming the entire system.
Speaking to reporters here in Madhya Pradesh, Singh also targeted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying his speeches are only filled with divisive references like “Hindu-Muslim” and “Shamshan- Kabristan ”.
Attacking RSS, Congressman Rajya Sabha said it was like a “dimak” (termite) silently damaging a house or household goods. Likewise, RSS also works quietly and damages the entire system.
“I know I will be severely mistreated for comparing RSS to termite. But, I didn’t call the termite RSS. I said the character of the ideology that is silently damaging the entire system of the country is a termite, ” Singh added.
Speaking about the upcoming elections in BJP-led Uttar Pradesh, he said: “You (the media) must listen to the speeches made by Yogi Adityanath. Have you heard any phrases other than Hindu-Muslim, Hindustan-Pakistan or Shamshan-Kabristan (cremation grounds and cemeteries)? Singh alleged that a false narrative was being created to spread the message that the Hindu religion is under threat. “This is done so that fascist ideology can progress and money can be earned through political office,” he said.
Singh said that the Hindu religion had never faced any danger, even during the hundred years of rule under Muslims and “British Christians”.
