Bengaluru, October 07 (KMS): The Leader of Opposition in the India’s upper house of parliament, Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge has said the RSS has infiltrated all sectors, including education, and his long fight against the organisation cost him his Lok Sabha seat during the 2019 parliamentary polls.
“They (RSS) are infiltrating everywhere, including education. Many officers are directly recruited, amending the rule and that much (people) are deprived of reservation …,” Kharge said in response to a question.
Speaking to reporters here, he said he has been fighting the RSS and its ideology from the age of 15-16, and it is one of the reasons for his loss in 2019 Lok Sabha election from Gulbarga seat.
“We are fighting against the RSS, we don’t want to hide it. We will fight and that’s why I lost my election also. The RSS is not pro-poor, it is not for social justice. They believe in ‘Manusmiti’, read Golwalkar Guruji the second Sarsanghchalak of RSS,” he said.
On the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, Kharge demanded a probe by a sitting Supreme Court judge to bring the facts out, and immediate release of opposition leaders who have been illegally detained. He also demanded Ajay Mishra’s immediate dismissal from the union cabinet.
