RSS chief’s flag hoisting: Surendran defends move, VT Balram mocks RSS
Kasargod/Thiruvananthapuram: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat unfurling the tricolour at a government-aided school in Palakkad violating the district administration’s directives has sparked a fresh controversy.
Now BJP leader K Surendran has rushed to defend the move, saying those who criticise the RSS chief are intolerant. Mohan Bhagwat is a person who would have occupied any government posts if he had wished for, he said in a Facebook post.
The RSS does not belong to the ‘genus’ which runs away fearing the ‘decrees’ of the government, Surendran said.
Meanwhile, Congress MLA V T Balram trolled the RSS chief for taking the place of an MLA to hoist the flag in a government-aided school. In his Facebook post, he wished all Indians 71st Independence Day and wished all RSS workers 15th anniversary of touching a national flag with their hands.
He also ‘thanked’ the ‘anti-fascist government’ in Kerala for giving an opportunity to the RSS chief to hoist flag in a government-aided school.
