shirt and half pants copying the Congress uniform for its volunteers (Express file photo by Amit Mehra) Top News Rahul Gandhi has flip-flopped on the question of his criticism of the RSS but in the end he has done the right thing Lessons in history are always good for aspirants to power the Congress has no future so it is increasingly seeking solace in its past But Rahul should not take the received Congress version as the true one So here is a non-Congress history The RSS and CPI were founded in the same year 1925 but somehow the RSS has waxed while the CPI has waned Both were set up on the lines of European movements The RSS chose its uniform of khaki shirt and half pants copying the Congress uniform for its volunteers The RSS was non-political and did not display religion as much as the Hindu Mahasabha did Its growth for the first 20 years was modest but in the Bihar earthquake its voluntary work was remarkable There were negotiations afoot to merge it into the Congress after Independence Nathuram Godse spoiled it all The RSS was banned for about 15 months It took another 25 years before the RSS surfaced again Thanks to Indira Gandhi’s Emergency the RSS could join the struggle against real fascism by being on the side of freedom and democracy The CPI collaborated with Emergency The RSS joined hands with the Imam of Jama Masjid in fighting Sanjay Gandhi’s sterilisation campaign for Muslims Jana Sangh members became freedom fighters going to prison during the Emergency The Emergency thus secured the reputation and the future of the BJP/ RSS as nationalist movements The Congress lost its secular liberal patina though it suffers from amnesia about the Emergency The RSS did what originally the Communist parties were supposed to do They penetrated into society — schools colleges temples civil society groups — and spread their message diligently It was a simple message: Secularism as practised by the Congress was fraud pseudo secularism and it was anti-Hindu Maharashtra was its home Gujarat became a test bed and a very successful one The next steps were in the heartland of Uttar Pradesh Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan After the assassination of Indira Gandhi the RSS fought on the side of the Congress against Sikh militancy and contributed to Rajiv Gandhi’s landslide victory in 1984 But then as Rajiv began to lose the plot and frittered away the largest majority in India’s history the RSS went back to its BJP acolytes The loss of Congress hegemony in 1989 changed Indian politics An attempt was made to exploit the Ram Janmabhoomi issue to construct a winning majority of Hindu votes Despite the destruction of Babri Masjid the BJP did not come to power The only effect was that the Congress lost the UP Muslim vote and never came to power there again The BJP did come to power in the NDA coalition with A B Vajpayee’s moderate image but frittered it away It was the idea of inclusive growth which delivered Narendra Modi’s victory and brought the RSS closer to power than ever before But the RSS is an oppositional movement hierarchical and undemocratic It cannot handle social equality or gender justice When it was growing up the RSS was indispensable for the BJP But now it has matured and is about to become the hegemonic party It is a moot question if the BJP needs the RSS’s parental guidance For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsIn an exclusive interview to Headlines Today Rahul Gandhi hit out at Narendra Modi saying his Gujarat model favoured only industrialists and it was all talk and no show "Gujarat first stood on it’s feet on the basis of small businesses Amul milk the co-operative movement is what Gujarat draws it’s strength from Let’s look at the Gujarat model One man whose business turnover ten years ago was Rs 3000 crore is now worth Rs 40000 crore rupees today" Rahul said Rahul Gandhi PTI When asked if he was speaking of Adani he said "I don’t want to take names He’s worth Rs 40000 crore How did this happen Land the size of Vadodara was given to him Are you aware at what For Rs 300 crore Now you talk about the state Textile industry is finished I have interacted with diamond cutters of Gujarat They are perishing Their children are dying of hunger The farmers are crying The state has maximum labour disputes But there is marketing They come on TV and talk So this is the reality of the Gujarat model — favour two or three industrialists It’s very simple Can you name any other industrialists in Gujarat" he asked Gandhi who filed his nomination papers from Amethi earlier today dismissed pre-poll surveys saying this had been said about the Congress in 2004 as well as in 2009 "In 2004 the exit polls predicted the Congress party would lose There was so much talk about the India shining campaign marketing campaign In 2009 they said the same But the results were contradictory The marketing is good The BJP knows how to market itself But in the end the result will speak for itself" he said While he said he was not interested in Modi’s personal issues he said Modi represents an ideology that would harm the country "The ideology he represents is to make one community fight with another This ideology is dangerous for India My fight is against that ideology Now in Gujarat he has his own economic ideas I told you my opinion on those economic ideas For one or two or three people to be entrusted with the entire country’s wealth is dangerous This is what I fight against I’m not interested in personal attacks and I don’t veer into that area" he said Asked about comments by Azam Khan and Mulayam Singh he said any kind of fundamentalism was dangerous for India "We are challenging the Samajwadi Party in UP We don’t have a partnership with them Any kind of fundamentalism is dangerous for India Our country progresses only when there is communal harmony We have governed for 10 years now There is a debate about growth rate We have delivered a high rate of growth We have built roads we have generated adequate power we lifted 15 crore people above the line of poverty We have delivered on both counts There is no marketing there is no glitz But programmes information to understand the people’s pain — the Congress know how to do that" Answering a question on corruption Rahul Gandhi said "Corruption is India’s reality But if we have to combat corruption then we have to stop talking and start acting How will that change happen With institutional frameworks not rhetoric You read the BJP manifesto They say we will fight against the corruption But point me to where they specify their strategy What will they do to act against corruption The biggest achievement in this direction and I have contributed to it has been the right to information act" While Rahul says he has contributed to help the country get rid of corruption his critics have said that he does not practice what he preaches "Like I told you I intervened during RTI I was not at the forefront I stayed in the background When Lokpal was being discussed I spoke about an constitutional amendment A constitutional Lokpal would be stronger than the Lokpal bill we have passed The one that has been passed is institutional a body like the Election Commission" he said However he said fighting corruption would be a long battle "If you are serious about weeding out corruption you should know it’s going to be a long battle not a small fight I’ve been on the job and I will continue to be on it I think that if you want to emerge victorious you will have to change the political parties The solution will emerge from doing that" Rahul Gandhi also dismissed allegations that the Congress destroyed India’s economy "The truth is that we have in our 10 years delivered a much higher growth rate as compared to the five years that the NDA was in power At the end of the day there has been a global recession and it has caused a slowdown in India as well But if you compare we have fared a lot better than the BJP And this is the reality People of India are aware of it Business class needs to understand that we will move ahead with this partnership Only when there is a partnership between the common man and industry leaders will the nation move ahead If you focus only on the poor and forget the business class we will not progress" "We speak about the manufacturing corridor we talk about roads we talk about power but in the same breath we talk about the poor as well People say they don’t get traiend workers But it is our responsibility to provide training to the large number of poor in our small towns and in our villages who are the human resources of our future" he said When asked about complaints in Amethi on infrastructure he said "In Uttar Pradesh Samajwadi Party is in power The responsibility of roads electricity and schools lies with the state government The Central government has built national highways and we have done a good job We have done a lot of work for and with women in Amethi We have opened bank accounts for over 10-12 lakh women and it has changed their lives In UP we don’t have a Congress government and this affects the people of the state and that is the reality we have to accept" Lastly when Rahul was asked a personal question about getting married he said "When I find the right girl I will get married I don’t get much time that’s true But it’s about destiny" What a talent!000 US troops permanently stationed in South Korea, I don’t care what color or ethnicity you are,rustic terrain in the interiors of
