Kalaburagi, Feb 13 (UNI) RSS is pulling the strings of BJP-led NDA government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has placed its cadre in every Ministry and Departments, AICC President Rahul Gandhi alleged on Tuesday.

Mr Gandhi, on his fourth and last day of campaign tour of Hyderabad Karnataka region, ahead of Assembly election in May, during his interaction with professionals and business community here, alleged that RSS is interfering in the functioning of Modi government.

“In every Single Ministry at the National level there is an OSD (Officer of Special Duty) from the RSS. The Minister is not conducting operations on his own. The Minister is guided by the RSS on what to do,” he alleged.

“You know from where the idea of demonetisation came from? Do you know who gave the idea of notebandi to the Prime Minister of the country? It was not from the Reserve Bank of India; not from Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. It was not from an office of the Finance Ministry. The idea was given by a particular ideologue of the RSS,” Mr Gandhi alleged.

Coming down heavily on RSS for its interference in the administration of the country, Mr Gandhi alleged that “the RSS gives the idea and the Prime Minister launches the idea.”

Stating that the Union government posts RSS ideologues in Ministries, Mr Gandhi said the NITI Aayog was established by scrapping the Planning Commission. Another example was the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh where the BJP government destroyed educational institutions by recruiting thousands of teachers.

Defending his visit to temples, Mr Gandhi said “I like going to temples, wherever I see a religious place I go there. I feel good and feel happy, and I will continue (to go),” Mr Gandhi added.
