Mamata says all in RSS are ‘not bad’; Owaisi, BJP and Congress react- Newslength

New Delhi: A veritable political ‘storm in a tea cup’ has arisen over TMC Supremo Mamata Banerjee’s assertions on Wednesday that each one within the RSS have been “not bad” and there are lots of who “do not support BJP”. Whereas the AIMIM, Congress and CPM on Thursday attacked her for what they noticed as opportunism on Banerjee’s half, the BJP stated it didn’t want certificates from her. The RSS, as a substitute of commenting on her left-handed reward, pointed to Bengal’s file of political violence and requested for corrective measures. The sharpest assault got here from the Hyderabad-based All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, who on Thursday stated that “in 2003 too, she had called RSS ‘patriots’, (and) in turn Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh had called her Durga”.

Owaisi, whose social gathering did not win a single seat together with Muslim majority constituencies in Bengal within the final meeting elections the place it positioned itself versus each TMC and BJP, stated sarcastically “hope TMC’s ‘Muslim faces’ praise her for her honesty and consistency”.

The TMC, nevertheless, tried to make mild of Owaisi’s comment and stated the social gathering does not must show its secular credentials to him.

“We don’t need to prove anything to Owaisi. Mamata Banerjee has tried to say that every organisation has good and bad people. We don’t need to prove our secular credentials to anyone after we defeated the BJP-RSS juggernaut in the last assembly polls,” TMC MP Sougata Roy stated.

Nevertheless, in addition to AIMIM, a number of larger events joined the fray in taking up Mamata’s `reward’ for the RSS.

Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Thursday informed PTI, “This is not the first time that she (Mamata Banerjee) has praised the RSS.”

Banerjee had allied herself with the BJP-led NDA throughout late Atal Behari Vajpayee’s time period as Prime Minister, earlier than distancing herself from the NDA however had a tempestuous relationship with the alliance, typically attacking it over disinvestment and different points.

He repeated Owaisi’s occasion from 2003, when “she had participated in a book release programme of the RSS. She had sought their support to topple the Left Front government (then).”

Chowdhury claimed Banerjee had even earlier than that expressed her gratitude to the Nagpur-based RSS, which is taken into account the ideological father or mother of the BJP.

“Sometimes she cajoles Hindu fundamentalists and sometimes the Muslims to get electoral dividends. Mamata Banerjee has been exposed again,” the Congress chief informed PTI.

The West Bengal chief minister had in a passing comment at a state secretariat operate on Wednesday stated, “RSS was not that bad. There are still people in the RSS who do not support the politics BJP does”.

The Communists weren’t far behind in pillorying Banerjee. CPI(M) central committee member Sujan Chakraborty claimed that her feedback vindicate the Left social gathering’s stand that she is a “product” of the RSS.

“It is once again clear that TMC is not trustworthy in the fight against BJP,” the CPI(M) chief claimed.

The RSS, whose relations with TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee was the subject of political hypothesis, selected to disregard the reward and urged her to cease the cycle of political violence within the state.

“She has said there are some good people in RSS. We would like to tell her that there can be political differences, but does that mean (political activists should involve themselves in) killing opponents,” RSS state common secretary Jishnu Basu stated.

Basu claimed round 60 individuals have been killed within the state in post-poll violence.

“She should have ensured law and order is in place. She is the chief minister of those who voted for her and those who voted against her,” he identified.

BJP nationwide vice-president Dilip Ghosh stated neither the RSS nor the BJP wants a certificates from Banerjee.

“We don’t need a certificate from Mamata Banerjee on who is good and who is bad. It is for the people to decide. We are not answerable to her,” Ghosh stated.
