Bangalore, 10/8: Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah on Tuesday dubbed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as “an association of upper castes” while calling upon Congress workers to fight against “fake patriots”.
The former chief minister was speaking at the 80th anniversary of the Quit India Movement.
“I oppose the RSS from the beginning as it is just an association of upper castes. They believe in the ‘Chaturvarna’ (caste) system. The ‘Chaturvarna’ believes in the supremacy of upper castes. Under such a system, there will be inequality, leading to exploitation,” Siddaramaiah said.
