Home Minister's participation in RSS march condemned

The participation of Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Umashankar Gupta in the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) path-sanchalan programme has been condemned.

Gupta has been inducted into the state cabinet recently. As soon as he got the important portfolio of Home, the very next day he was seen joining the RSS volunteers in the path-sanchalan. The photographs of Gupta, wearing the khaki knickers and holding the baton, has led to criticism.

State Congress has taken exception and said that it will send the wrong message to the forces and police. Congress leaders said that the police will work with bias and the allied outfits of the RSS like Bajrang Dal and VHP would get more fearless in their acts.

The Congress spokesman JP Dhanopia has said that the participation of Gupta in full uniform of RSS would instill a sense of insecurity among the minorities. He has demanded that the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should remove Gupta from the post of Home Minister, because of his conduct.
