My Hero, Your Hero - The War Goes On

Guna (MP): Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh today asked the RSS to clarify whether they consider Mohammad Ali Jinnah responsible for the division of the country or not.


Singh was reacting to a recent statement of former RSS chief K S Sudarshan in which he held Mahatma Gandhi equally responsible for the partition.

"Since RSS played no role in the Independence of the country, its leaders are giving such statements to ensure that their name somehow got included in the freedom struggle movement," Singh told reporters at his ancestral town Raghogarh, about 40 km from here.


"It was a historical fact that both Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru have tried to prevent partition of the country, but because of Jinnah's stubborn and hardliner attitude the nation was divided and now the BJP is viewing secularism in him," he said.

He asked both Sudarshan and present RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to clarify whether they consider Jinnah responsible for the partition or not.


On BJP MLAs' proposed agitation in New Delhi on August 19 on the issue of alleged discrimination in the allocation of Central funds, Singh said, "The BJP's proposed demonstration is nothing but merely a drama as they don't have any issues."

On Naxal menace, he said it has assumed alarming proportions in BJP-ruled Chhattisgarh and also in Jharkhand. Singh said the Naxal problem cannot be solved by the Army.

The Congress general secretary said he has no differences with Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on the issue of Naxalism.


"The only difference is that Chidambaram speaks in English and I in Hindi," he said in a lighter vein.
