Khurshid slams RSS for criticising NAC
Nagpur: Union Law and Justice Minister Salman
Khurshid on Saturday lashed out at the RSS for questioning the
constitutional validity of the National Advisory Council (NAC)
headed by UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
"Those (RSS) who do not unfurl the national tricolour at
their headquarters and buildings on Independence Day and
Republic Day have no moral right to talk about the
constitutional validity of NAC," he told reporters here.
Khurshid`s remarks come in the wake of RSS chief Mohan
Bhagwat`s criticism of NAC, which provides policy and
legislative inputs to the government, and his opposition to
the Communal Violence Bill drafted by the Gandhi-led panel.
He said the Bill would come before Parliament and "if
they (RSS) want, they can defeat the bill through members
(MPs) supporting their viewpoint."
Speaking at a Dussehra rally here on October 6, Bhagwat
had dubbed the Bill as "a deceitful action of destructive
minds detrimental to democratic values."
The BJP has also voiced its opposition to the proposed
legislation, which intends to prevent and control targeted
violence against certain groups, calling it "dangerous" and
"harmful to the federal structure of the Constitution."
