RSS changed its dress code, now it should change its ideology: Digvijaya

Lucknow: Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Sunday said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) should alter its ideology after it changed its dress code and asked who gave the saffron outfit's members the right to "certify" someone as "anti-national".

"In its meeting held in Nagaur, RSS changed the dress code of its volunteers. It has changed dress code now it should also change its ideology," Singh told reporters.

Khaki shorts, the trademark RSS dress for 91 years, is on its way out and making way for brown trousers as part of the organisation's endeavour to "move with the times" and demonstrate that it is "not rigid".

Singh said RSS people were demanding that "anti-national elements" from all universities be chucked out and asked, "who gave them the right to issue certificates about somebody being anti-national".

The senior Congress leader, who was here to attend the wedding reception of Aditya Yadav, son of senior UP cabinet minister Shivpal Singh, said most partymen were of the view that Priyanka Gndhi Vadra should join active politics and he himself wanted that.

Terming the Vishnu Sahai Commission report on Muzaffarnagar riots as "surprising", he said every person knew about the involvement of a BJP MP and MLA in spreading the conflagration.

On Vijay Mallaya issue, Singh said, "Everyone knows, who allowed the liquor baron to go outside the country despite heavy debts".
