Government flayed for RSS speech on Doordarshan

New Delhi


The CPI-M Friday criticized the government for telecasting live the annual speech of the RSS chief on Doordarshan, saying this shows "how the public broadcaster is being misused".

The Communist Party of India-Marxist said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat used "the occasion to propagate its Hindutva ideology".

"The national public broadcaster has no business to telecast live the speech of the chief of an organisation like the RSS," a CPI-M statement said.

"Such an action shows how the public broadcaster is being misused by the Modi government." - IANS
