RSS leader Indresh Kumar makes U-turn after taking dig at BJP ; says, ‘Those who opposed Lord Ram...’

RSS leader's U-turn after dig at BJP | Amid the controversy sparked by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar's remarks, where he labelled the BJP as arrogant, limiting it to 240 seats, and described the INDIA bloc as anti-Ram, the RSS leader clarified that the outcome of the Lok Sabha polls indicates that those who opposed Lord Ram have been defeated. He further stated that those aiming to restore Lord Ram's glory are now in power.

RSS leader whipped up a political storm for stating that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was restricted to 240 seats, well below the majority mark, in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, due to its "arrogance".                    


"Desh ka vatavaran iss samay mein bahut spasht hai - jinhone Ram ka virodh kiya wo sab satta se baahar hain, jinhone Ram ki bhakti ka sankalp liya aaj wo satta mein hain aur teesri baar ki sarkar Narendra Modi ke netritva mein bann gayi hai," Kumar said in an interview. 

When questioned about RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's criticism of the central government regarding the unrest in Manipur, Indresh Kumar refused to comment, stating, "It is the tradition of the Sangh in this country that one should not comment on the remarks of the Honourable Sarsanghchalak." Responding to the backlash over his controversial statement, Kumar noted that both Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal have also made poll predictions.

"Rahul had earlier stated that Narendra Modi will not be the Prime Minister after June 4 (Lok Sabha election results day). Kejriwal had said that the INDIA bloc will win specific number of seats. These are their announcements in their own political style...," the RSS leader said.

Meanwhile, Yoga guru Baba Ramdev sought to downplay Indresh Kumar's controversial remarks, stating that such political rhetoric is common. 

"Political comments are frequent. Lord Ram belongs to everyone; this nation belongs to everyone, and we are all interconnected. Creating divisions based on ideology or religious groups goes against national unity," Ramdev said.
