Congress leader Digvijay Singh, on Saturday justified the remark of party vice president Rahul Gandhi, that the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh was responsible for the killing of Mahatma Gandhi.


The RSS on Friday moved the Election Commission against Rahul Gandhi who HAD accused them of killing Mahatma Gandhi.

While addressing a rally, Gandhi had alleged that the RSS had killed Mahatma Gandhi in 1948.

Addressing the media here today, Digvijaya Singh justified Rahul Gandhi's comment on RSS that the ideology of the radical outfit had killed Mahatma Gandhi.

"Yes, what he has said is true that the ideology of the Sangh is responsible for the murder of Mahatma Gandhi. And if we review the statements of Gopal Godse and Nathuram Godse, they have made it clear in their statement that they both were workers of the Sangh," said Singh.

Singh also lashed out BJP prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi for disowning his wife Jashodaben.

"Jashodaben is living in a rented house, why does he not accept her? He should accept her and if they do not wish to stay together, he should at least provide her with accommodation and a vehicle. When Narendra Modi has acquired all worldly wealth, he should also look after Jashodaben. When he is not able to look after his own wife and respect her, how do you expect him to respect other women?"said Singh.
