Ban RSS, BJP if we are terrorists, Rajnath Singh dares Sushilkumar Shinde

Rajnath Singh

"We don't want to disrupt parliamentary proceedings. But we will confront the Government on this issue of national pride, and corruption. The responsibility of running Parliament smoothly lies with the ruling party. The opposition parties, acting as watchdogs on the Government, expect that the questions they raise related to country's reputation are answered satisfactorily," he said.

Accusing the Home Minister of undermining national pride with his remarks, Singh said, "It is very unfortunate. What will happen if our PM and ruling party chairperson do not speak on issues concerning national pride."

Singh said not just the Hindus but nationalist Muslims had also criticised Shinde's remarks.
