Sharad Yadav compares BJP reign with that of Adolf Hitler

Comparing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government rule with that of Adolf Hitler, Janata Dal (United) (JD-U) leader Sharad Yadav on Thursday said when the people of India and world stand together, then even Hitler will have to bow down in front of them.

Speaking at the 'Sanjhi Virasat Bachao' meeting in Delhi, Yadav said, "When the people of India and world stand together then even Hitler cannot win."

Earlier in the day, training guns at the BJP Government at the Centre and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said Prime Minister Narendra Modi party's ideological parent RSS follows "a divisive agenda."

Rahul accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led-Government of imposing RSS ideology in every institution of the country.

"There are two ways of looking at the country - some say that this is their country, while others say they belong to the country. And this is the difference between us and the RSS," he said.

"The RSS says that this is their country and we don't belong here. In Gujarat they thrashed the Dalits and said that this is their country and they don't belong here. RSS is aware that with this ideology they cannot win elections. That is why they are putting their people in every institution," he added.

Alleging that Prime Minister Modi sells lies to the public, the Congress vice-president said the Opposition must fight together to defeat the BJP.

While taking a jibe at Prime Minister Modi's Make in India initiative, Rahul said, "Modi ji gave 'Make In India', but I mainly find things that are 'Made in China'. Truth is that Modi Ji's Make In India has failed."

He was joined by several other Opposition leaders for the programme.

Sharad Yadav has called on the leaders of other opposition parties today in Delhi known as the ' Sanjhi Virasat Bachao' event.

Top leaders of the Congress, the Left, the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and other parties opposed to the BJP are attending the programme which is being seen as Yadav's show of strength against his party chief Nitish Kumar's decision to ally with the BJP.
