Irked by Rahul Gandhi’s remark accusing “RSS people” of having killed Mahatma Gandhi, the Sangh has decided to initiate legal action against him and lodge a complaint with the Election Commission.

“Legal action will be initiated against Rahul Gandhi for his irresponsible utterances linking RSS with Gandhi’s murder. Complaint will be filed with EC too,” RSS spokesperson Ram Madhav said on social networking site twitter.

The Sangh has taken umbrage to the statement made by Gandhi at a rally in Maharashtra on Thursday.

While addressing the rally in Thane district, the Congress Vice President had alleged that it was “RSS people” who had killed Mahatma Gandhi.

“RSS people killed Gandhiji and today their people (BJP) talk of him…They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji,” Rahul had said in his speech.

        Rahul hi is the strongest youth icon in this country. His efforts to bring transparency in the political system by incorporating the youth brigade in strategic posts have won him wide praise.. RSS and BJP always been shame for nation.

            There is no point in taking on the RSS now who had been left out all these years by Congress.Congress had many opportunities to finish RSS but were either prevented by the RSS people within the party or by their own volition.All this talk of killing and punishment could have been done in many riots cases but Congress never wanted the perpetrators who were RSS people punished as they were misled in to believing that Hindus would turn against them by the devoted RSS ideologues within Congress party.To nail the coffin box Congress made Manmohan Singh the PM who is at best an honest man with no leadership qualities.Once the BJP comes to power,Sonia and her children will be behind bars and Congress will go through .This is the cost for their omissions and poor way of handling issues of importance.
