an extended political arm of the RSS and followed its
"BJP is nothing but the political arm of the RSS and
follows its guidance," Yechury told reporters here while
commenting on the ongoing developments in the BJP.
"For BJP, it is the essential Hindutva hardcore agenda
which was creating problems in the party and the party could
not sideline any of the RSS directions," the CPI (M) leader
Without concentrating on burning issues like price rise,
drought and other people`s problems, the party (BJP) was
"quarelling" over Jinnah and two-nation theory, the CPI (M)
polit-buro member said.
On People`s issues, on economic policies and on strategic
relations with USA, between the BJP and Congress there is
little difference, Yechury added.
