BJP, RSS like Kauravas, designed to fight for power: Rahul

New Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday equated the BJP and RSS with the “Kauravas” of the Hindu epic Mahabarata, saying they were designed to “fight for power”.

Gandhi also said that people will accept that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is drunk with power

“Centuries ago, there was huge battle on the field of Kurukshetra. The Kauravas were powerful and arrogant, while the Pandavas were humble and they fought for the truth

“Like the Kauravas, the BJP and the RSS are designed to fight for power, but like Pandavas, the Congress is designed to fight for truth,” he said while addressing the party’s plenary session here.

Gandhi also said that people will accept that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is drunk with power “because they know what it is designed for”.

Taking a potshot at BJP President Amit Shah without taking his name, he said, “They (the BJP) will accept a person with the murder charge as their party President.”

“But in Congress… they know that its an organisation of truth,” he said.

“India accepts the truth,” the Congress President added.

Earlier, the Congress plenary on Sunday authorsied party President Rahul Gandhi to constitute the Congress Working Committee (CWC).

The proposal was adopted with a consensus by raising of hands.

Taking the proposal, party leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that in the history of Congress, election to the CWC had been held only about a dozen times.

Most of the times it has been left to the Congress President to constitute the CWC.
