" Gandhi hit out at the RSS, saying even Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel described it as a poisonous outfit that can destroy the nation."
Dharamsala, March 21 - A day after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's attacked BJP's ideological mentor RSS, describing it as a poisonous outfit, BJP leader Shanta Kumar Friday said the Congress leader had raised issues not linked with the common man.

I expected that a leader like Rahul Gandhi to touch issues like corruption, inflation and deteriorating law and order situation in the country. But, the Congress leader raised the issues which were irrelevant at this point in time, Shanta Kumar, the party candidate from Kangra Lok Sabha seat in Himachal Pradesh, told reporters here.

The former union minister and Himachal chief minister said the world has been raising fingers on the increasing incidents of gang rape in the capital.

Why doesn't he address those issues, he asked, adding the ideology of RSS was not an issue to be raised.

Gandhi hit out at the RSS, saying even Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel described it as a poisonous outfit that can destroy the nation.

Sardar Patel ne kaha tha ki RSS ek zehreela sangathan hai -, he said at a rally here in Kangra district, some 250 km from Shimla.
