Branding RSS workers as terrorists is nonsense, says PM's brother

Bengaluru Jan 13 (DHNS): Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's statement branding RSS workers as terrorists is a nonsensical remark, said Prahlad Damodardas Modi, the younger brother of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"RSS workers strove day and night during the India-Pakistan war and calling them terrorists is absolutely not acceptable. They shed their blood to protect the country and it is nonsense to make such a remark," he said here on Friday. Prahlad Modi was in Bengaluru to take part in Vivekananda Jayanti celebrations at Sri Krishna International School.

"Congress drags the issue of my sister-in-law (Jashoda Ben, Narendra Modi's wife) the way Kaurava's dragged Draupadi into politics. They (Congress) do not have anything else to talk. Their only job is to show people the wrong direction," he said.

During his speech at the programme, Prahlad Modi drew a parallel between Narendra Modi and Swami Vivekananda. "Both Narendranath Datta (pre-monastic name of Swami Vivekananda) and Narendra Modi share the same name and both are striving to protect our religion and dharma. Both of them are alive in every corner of India either with their ideologies or with their work towards dharma," he said.

He said he runs a small shop and the income from it was enough to sustain his family. "I do not wish to be in politics. Our family does not want to make a fortune out of it," he added.

    Lord Brahma knows every one .., what is there his/her own mind & heart..., what he/she does/do..., The parivar outfits has its umbilical connection to RSS no one deny it...,

    The doubt needs to be cleared by these self proclaimed saviors of nationalism/dharma/culture etc., -
    what is preaching vs what is practicing...,

    Those who engage in heinous acts were more than often directly or indirectly defended by the ideologues belong to these organization by subverting the underlying substance of discussion/accusation on many occasion those apparent beyond reasonable doubt...!!!

    Why not these guyz not speak for Late honorable Justice Loya ..., is he not a Hindu...???

    Ok, it's our fate that your brother becomes PM. But. who are you?
    Earlier in 2014-15, you were in news for a couple of times lashing, criticising your brothers' govt. What happened now? Your then statement "Govt. had failed to live up to peoples expectation" now you might be living up to your expectations. Isn't that called Nepotism now?

    Siddu by mentioning RSS & BJP as terror outfits has stirred a large BEES nest indeed. These bees will sting and with high velocity! He will not know what has stung him in fact.

    With that stupid comment, the narrative in state polls has changed. Siddu will not be allowed to talk on his "development' and Indira Canteens etc....By the way there is already RTI filed to know state exchequer being spent on canteens and samaveshas.

    There are few affiliates of RSS who create terror in the society and we must call them terrorists. It doesn't mean while organisation is terrorist.
    But, can't even ignore such activities as it may lead to catastrophic disasters eventually. Better control now.

    Non sense is comparing Vivekananda with his brother just because they share commom name Narendra. Vivekananda abhorred lying even in a lighter vein and as for his brother, less said the better. Sidharamaiah never used the word Terrorist wrt RSS, he used ' Extremist' ( ugravadi) and there's ba difference between the two.
    Also the only reason why people are talking about his sister in law is, his great brother lied about having married her in all his electoral affidavits right from his Gurath assembly days. In 2014 when EC threatened of disqualification, the truth came out.
    Looks like Faking is hereditary.
