New Delhi, Nov 7 (IANS): The BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) on Saturday hit back at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for calling the RSS a "fascist organisation", and dubbed him a "novice in politics".
Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused the RSS of destroying liberal and secular India. "For the first time, a fascist organisation has achieved decisive power," the Congress leader said in a valedictory speech at a national conference here.
"Jinke rajneetik doodh ke daant abhi tak toote nahi hain, woh (RSS chief) Mohan Bhagwat-ji par tippani na karein (Those who are novices in politics should not comment on Mohan Bhagwat-ji), Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh told reporters here.
The RSS also reacted and hoped that the Congress had got a "befitting reply" from Singh.
"Lagta hai Congress ko @Giriraj ji se uchit jawab mil gaya hoga (Seems the Congress has got a befitting reply from Giriraj-ji)," the RSS said on its Twitter handle after retweeting Giriraj's comments.
