Congress leader Rahul Gandhi at a press conference today stated that, “Varun Gandhi is in BJP if he walks here then it might be a problem for him. My ideology doesn’t match his ideology. I cannot go to the RSS office; I’ll have to be beheaded before that. My family has an ideology. Varun adopted another and I can’t accept that ideology. I can meet him, hug him, but I can’t accept that ideology.”
Varun Gandhi is the Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament from Pilibhit. However, Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the BJP and the RSS of capturing all institutions in the country, and claimed there is “pressure” on the media, Election Commission and the judiciary. He also took a swipe at the Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab and asserted that Punjab should be run from Punjab only, not from Delhi.
Addressing the media from Hoshiarpur, Rahul Gandhi said that the BJP and RSS have captured all the institutions in the country. “Today all the institutions of the country are controlled by the RSS and the BJP. There is a pressure on all institutions. Press is under pressure, bureaucracy is under pressure, the Election Commission is under pressure, they put pressure on the judiciary,” he charged.
Adding further he said that “This is not a fight between one political party and another political party. It is now a fight between the institutions of the country, which were captured by them, and the opposition.”
