‘Only RSS has grown under Modi regime’

Ramalinga Reddy, former Home Minister and Congress MLA, on Wednesday lashed out at the Narendra Modi government saying that “only khaki shorts of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) have grown” during the five-year rule of the BJP government and not the country’s economy.

Mr. Reddy said: “The country’s economy was not expanded. Trousers replaced khaki shorts in 2016.” He alleged that the Modi government transformed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) into a “Reliance Seva Sangh,”.

Addressing presspersons at the party office here, Mr. Reddy talked about contradictions in the Hindultva narrative. He said the country was second in the world in the export of meat. The meat export from India amounted to ₹26,000 crore per year, he said, asking if Mr. Modi would dare ban the export.

Mr. Reddy alleged that Mr. Modi was using air strikes against Pakistan for election purpose.
