Priyank Kharge reiterates ‘RSS ban in Karnataka’ warning, says ‘will show power of…’
The CM Siddaramaiah-led Karnataka Government on Saturday inducted 24 ministers into the cabinet
Priyank Kharge, All India Congress Committee (AICC) President Mallikarjun Kharge's son and newly elected Congress minister in Karnataka had ingeminated his call to ban Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS) party in Karnataka if they ‘just once try to disturb the peace in the society’.
Earlier on 25 May, Priyank Kharge had said that any organisation that sows seeds of "discontent and disharmony" won't be tolerated.
"Any organisation, either religious, political or social, who are going to sow seeds of discontent and disharmony in Karnataka will not be tolerated. We will tackle them legally and constitutionally - be it Bajrang Dal, PFI or any other organisation. We will not hesitate to ban them if they are going to be a threat to law and order in Karnataka," the Congress Minister said.
Speaking on a possible rollback on the hijab ban in Karnataka, Priyank Kharge had said that the party will review and if necessary reject any bill that is not in favour of the people or is unconstitutional.
However, state home minister and Congress leader G Parameshwara has refuted Priyank Kharge's claim and said that no such official decision of banning RSS had been discussed within the karnataka Government. Comments made on the same were personal or in reply to media queries, Parameshwara had added.
The Congress party in its manifesto for the Karnataka assembly election said that the party is committed to taking firm and decisive action against individuals and organisations spreading hatred among communities on grounds of caste and religion.
