Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the RSS imprint was evident everywhere in the BJP-led NDA government and that the outfit wanted to penetrate and control all institutions in the country.

“You currently have one institution called the RSS, mother of the BJP, which believes it is the only institution in the country. They want to penetrate into all other institutions and control them,” he said.

The mindset had led to chaos everywhere in the country, including areas of judiciary and education, he maintained.

“We believe India should be run by its 1.2 billion people. One set of people, one ideology should not run the country,” he said during an interaction with intellectuals in Bhubaneswar.

The Congress leader said his party had a view different from the ruling BJP when it came to functioning of key institutions.

“Our party has a different view on how key institutions should be supporting the country. It respects decentralisation, independence of institutions and constitutional advances,” he asserted.

Gandhi said “monopolisation and capture of the education and health care system in the country needs to be challenged”.

“A middle-class person has to pay crores to get good-quality education. The same is the case in the health care system. That needs to be challenged,” the Congress chief added. PTI
