Bhopal: Former RSS chief K S Sudarshan did
a Gadkari invoking "son-in-law" term to target Congress
leaders over issues relating to minorities.

Sudarshan asked are minorities the "son-in-law" of
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his 2006 remark advocating
that minority communities, especially Muslims, should have
first claim on resources so that benefits of development reach
them equitably.

"Minorities kya unkey damad lagte hain"," (is minority
community is his son-in-law) Sudarshan asked yesterday while
referring to the 2006 remark of Prime Minister made during the
52nd meeting of the National Development Council (NDC) that
plans for minorities, particularly Muslims, must have the
first claim on resources so that benefits of development reach
them equitably.

Sudarshan was addressing a national seminar organized
by the Dharampal Shoudh Peeth here in the presence of former
BJP President Murli Manohar Joshi yesterday.

The ex-RSS chief further asked whether all the people
of the country have no equal right on the nation?s resources?
What was the need for the Prime Minister to make such a
statement, he asked?

Gadkari had recently criticised Congress party leaders
over the delay in hanging Afzal Guru and asked whether the
Parliament attack death row convict was their "son-in-law".
The remarks had triggered a controversy inviting ridicule and
a strong reaction from the Congress.

Disapproving Sudarshan’s remark Madhya Pradesh
Congress Committee spokesman J P Dhanopia has termed RSS-BJP
leadership as "mentally bankrupt".
