An open letter to Rahul Gandhi for digressing from the core issues
Dear Rahul Gandhi, Greetings!!! As you know the world’s most vibrant democracy is all set to witness the spectacular democratic fair as the elections for the 16th Parliament are round the corner. Political parties are leaving no stone unturned to reach out to the gullible people to garner their support, especially in the form of votes.
The stage certainly is unfolding at times serious stuff, while at times raises many a grave question on the very model of canvassing to impact the people of nation. Issues certainly are: development, economic growth, unemployment, external and internal security threat among others. Do these issues matter?

The contest is definitely between the two leading national political parties- the Indian National Congress with you as de-facto prime ministerial candidate and the BJP with Narendra Modi as prime ministerial candidate.

I want to demolish the recent diatribe taken by you (Rahul Gandhi), the scion of Gandhi family, ultimately of the Congress. At a recent political rally, you raised many a pivotal question on the very functioning of RSS. Before demolishing your argument, I want to make it clear-I am neither a member of RSS or nor a sympathizer. I am simply a nationalist, whose heart bleeds for national issues, issues that matters to the gullible people of this incredible nation.

Do you have anything to boast in this election?

You had called the RSS as “communal” that perpetuates hatred against other religions, especially Muslims. Your diatribe didn’t end here, you further added, “RSS spews venom and its member assassinated the Mahatma Gandhi”. I want to ask you, Mr. Rahul- are these the issues that impact our beautiful nation?

Or perhaps, you don’t have anything to offer as nation has suffered massively under the UPA, headed by lame duck PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh and by Sonia Gandhi, your mother, the de-facto PM. Rampaging corruption, involving Congress man, including mother of all scam-the Coal scam, 2G and CWG, and despondent governance are not finding centre stage in your discourses. Why?

Did Nathuram Godse killed the Gandhi?

Mr. Rahul Commissions formed to enquire into the assassination of the Mahatma failed to conclude the involvement of RSS in the assassination of the Mahatma. None of the commissions had indicted RSS for conspiracy theory as alleged by many at that time, including Congress leadership of that time.

Perception battle was won by the dispensation of that time, and RSS was banned in the year 1948. The ban was lifted by none other than Sardar Vallabhai Patel in the year 1949 as evidence didn't corroborate the conspiracy theory-RSS was behind the murder of the Mahatma.

Mr. Rahul, Justice Kapoor Commission set up to look into the assassination of the Mahatma, in its report clearly exonerated the RSS. May I ask you humbly-when the Commission set up by the Congress dispensation of that period absolved the RSS, how come you can drag the RSS. Are you only trying to woo, fool voters as you have nothing to speak off?

RSS was invited by Nehru on the Republic Day

The RSS was invited by none other than your great grandfather, Jawahar Lal Nehru, the then prime minister of India to participate in the Republic Day commemoration of 1963. Why? Mr. Rahul, I want to educate you that Nehru applauded the role of RSS and its volunteers, called as swayam sewaks during the Indo-China war of 1962.

Mr. Rahul, RSS is not an organization that spews venom or perpetuates hatred among communities. That’s the perception created by vested interests. Rather, it’s a socio-cultural organization dedicated towards social causes, including education, rural development, tribal development, proliferating rich culture amongst youth, conversion among others.

Why are you dragging RSS in the election?

Banking on Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination, and RSS, it’s quite evident that you, Mr. Rahul Gandhi, are digressing from the core issues, faced by this nation. Your exasperation is palpable in your hollow speeches, fraught with glorification of your lineage, the Nehru-Gandhi family.

Emotional blackmailing? Instead of highlighting issues of masses, what you are trying to do is-striking emotional chord with the gullible people of India, who has been casting vote for Congress though the party has failed on many a front. Mr. Rahul, be mature, endeavor to comprehend the issues of the gullible people rather than fooling people. Best of luck, Mr. Rahul for the election.
