‘It’s a fight of Sanghistan vs Hindustan’

JNU Student’s Union president Kanhaiya Kumar on Thursday mounted a scathing attack on the RSS in a city where the Sangh’s headquarters is located.

Taking a jibe at the RSS, he said Nagpur was B.R. Ambedkar’s land and not M.S. Golwalkar’s (second RSS chief) the way Gujarat was Gandhi’s land and not Modi’s.

He dared the RSS to come clear on its stand on the Hindu Code Bill, equal rights for women, equal land distribution and distribution of the country’s wealth as per its population and also asked it to burn Manusmriti.

“Nagpur is not a home to people with half pants [RSS uniform], but it’s a place of people with full brain. Those, who did not unfurl the national flag at their headquarters for over 50 years, those who sided with the British and provided them intelligence, are teaching us patriotism now. It’s a fight of Sanghistan [RSS’ model of nation] versus Hindustan. We have to unite to save Hindustan against Sanghistan,” Mr. Kanhaiya told a roaring crowd.

He claimed that the BJP government and the RSS “conspired” to defame the Jawaharlal Nehru University by making a doctored video by offering bribe of a Rajya Sabha berth to a person when the university students started demanding justice for Hyderabad University scholar Rohith Vemula who committed suicide.

Mr. Kanhaiya attacked Mr. Modi and said son of a tea seller had become Prime Minister but he did not do anything for the tea seller.

“To defeat a big enemy of 56-inch chest, we need three smaller men of 18-inch chest. Let us defeat the bigger enemy first, we can sort out our issues later,” he said in reference to the PM.

Stressing the need to forming a society based on the ideals of social justice professed by Dr. Ambedkar, the JNUSU president said the proletariat which included Adivasis, Dalits, Backward Classes, minorities and women need to “unite and fight.”
