Communist Party of India (CPI) Monday said BJP’s manifesto was completely in tune with the agenda of RSS, which has now come out in the open to lead the principal opposition party.

“Issues like the Ram temple, Article 370 and Common Civil Code were not on the original agenda when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Prime Minister. BJP had then floated the national agenda for governance which did not contain these issues.

“Now BJP moving away from that position shows RSS has taken over. So, it is nothing but the RSS agenda which has been put in the BJP manifesto. RSS is dictating what BJP should do,” party National Secretary D Raja said.

Observing that Narendra Modi was RSS nominee and not of BJP, he claimed that the BJP was “going through an ideological and organisational crisis with RSS taking over. One can presume that this was one of the reasons for the delay in bringing out the manifesto.”

On economic and foreign policies, Raja said it showed BJP was no different from Congress. “It is on the same plank of supporting big business, corporates and international finance capital,” he said.

        D Raja is big leader! So big, that he can't even win an election on his own. He went to Rajya-Sabha with Jayalalitha's support last month! The fact is: he's an arm-chair politician who enjoys the good life and privileges of an Indian MP. If he was so worried about the country, he should have left his tax-payer funded AC-bunglow/car/air-travel, old-age pension etc. etc. and hit the hot and dusty election trails to explain the poor and illiterate millions about the ill-effects of a BJP-RSS combine. But that's too much hard work I guess in this hot Indian summer!!
