Bangalore: Janata Dal (Secular) leader and former Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy on Tuesday attacked the Rashtriya Sevak Sangh (RSS) saying that people undergoing training at the RSS branch watch 'blue films' during the assembly session. In fact, state BJP unit president Nalin Kumar Katil had invited Kumaraswamy to come to the RSS branch and learn the Sangh's activities. On this, Kumaraswamy has given this sharp answer.
He hit back at the BJP leader saying, "I don't want RSS's support. Have we not seen what is taught in the branch of RSS? How do the people who leave behave in the Assembly? Watching blue films during the assembly session, aren't they taught in the branch?'' Questioning, he said, "Do I need to go to the branch of the RSS to learn all this?"
Talking to the press, CM Kumaraswamy said, "I don't want his branch. I have learnt a lot from the branch of the poor. Now I have nothing to learn from them.'' In 2012, during the Karnataka Assembly session, three ministers were caught on camera allegedly looking at "obscene material." Referring to the same incident, Kumaraswamy has slammed BJP president Nalin Kumar.
