Hundreds of Congress supporters on Friday staged demonstrations in the national capital, Bhopal and Ajmer against former Sarsanghchalak KS Sudarshan’s derogatory remarks against party chief Sonia Gandhi.
Police used water canons to disperse the protesters who tried to enter the RSS building in Jhandewala in New Delhi, a senior police official said.
The agitating Congress supporters raised slogans against the RSS and the BJP and sought apology from Sudarshan.
Reports suggested that Congress activists also locked the RSS office in Ajmer.
Speaking to reporters in New Delhi, Congress leader Jagdish Tytler said, “They are immoral people. Such derogatory remark has never been given by somebody in this country.”
While interacting with the media in Bhopal on Wednesday, Sudarshan had called Congress president Sonia Gandhi a CIA agent and accused her of plotting assassinations of her husband and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and his mother Indira Gandhi.
After the Congress party on Thursday demanded an apology from Sudarshan for his reported remarks against Sonia Gandhi, the Hindu organisation distanced itself from the remarks.
In a statement issued to the media, RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya said it had nothing to do with Sudarshan’s comments. “The remarks are his own,” he told Zee News.
”It is not the language of Sangh. We debate on national issues not on personal issues,” he said.
250 leaders held
in Chhattisgarh

Raipur, Nov 12 (IANS): Chhattisgarh Congress president Dhanendra Sahu and Leader of Opposition Ravindra Choubey were among the 250 Congress leaders arrested here Friday for protesting against former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief K.S. Sudarshan’s derogatory remarks against their party president Sonia Gandhi. The arrests were made when Sahu, Choubey and several senior Congress leaders defied police prohibitions and marched towards the Governor house to press their demand for arrest of the former RSS chief.
The arrested Congress leaders were kept at a makeshift jail. The Congressmen alleged that the state’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party had ordered policemen to assault peaceful protesters. Congress workers were thrashed by the police across the state when they tried to burn Sudarshan’s effigies.
The Congress leadership in the state has announced it would step up protests against the former RSS boss till he is arrested or offers an apology to Gandhi.
