RSS on Monday rejected allegations that some of its workers were involved in thrashing a group of student protesters along with police personnel outside its headquarters in central Delhi two days back.

A video on Monday emerged in which some Delhi Police personnel along with some unidentified men were seen thrashing protesters and dragging female activists by their hair outside the RSS office during a demonstration on Saturday over dalit student Rohith Vemula’s suicide.

“No RSS worker was there at that time. If somebody feels that there was some highhandedness then there is option of inquiry, law. Police must have done whatever they found was appropriate,” incharge of RSS media unit of Delhi Rajiv Tuli said.

Reacting strongly to the assault, AAP leader Sanjay Singh, in a press conference, alleged that BJP and RSS workers were involved in thrashing the students along with police. Congress called it a “brutal assualt” by police on a group of “unarmed protesters” and demanded action against guilty policemen.

Delhi police Commissioner BS Bassi said he has directed senior officials to investigate the matter and see if there were any “indiscretions”.

      Rajnath singh is not good enough to protect Indian's from terrorist attack. But he is good in having his forces beat up Indians.

        About 200 million Dalits will be voting against the BJP and the selfie-hunting joker at the next Lok Sabha elections in 2019. BJP was super lucky to receive 31% votes at the last Lok Sabha elections. At the next Lok Sabha election, BJP cannot get more than about 15% of the votes. No Muslim votes. No Dalit votes. No South India votes. No Delhi votes. No Bihar votes. And believe it or not, hardly any Gujarat votes! So get ready for Mr Nitish Kumar to be the next PM.

          No Dalits are going to vote for the BJP at the next Lok Sabha elections. BJP, an off-shoot of RSS, is the Government of the upper castes. The Dalits must support Mr Nitish Kumar to be the next PM. Mr Nitish Kumar is educated, cultured and a sensible person who speaks. The mann-key man dokhlabhai fails on all these counts. India's economy has virtually collapsed under the mann-key man dokhlabhai who cannot speak.
