The RSS on Friday took strong exception to the CPI-M blaming Sangh workers for creating a ruckus during a press conference by Sitaram Yechury here on Thursday.

RSS Akhil Bhartiya Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya clarified in a statement that the Sangh does not approve of undemocratic ways of such ‘anti-social’ elements.

“RSS condemns the brazen attempt by undemocratic elements to disrupt the press conference of CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury yesterday at Delhi,” Vaidya said in a statement here.

A section of fringe Hindu outfits disrupted the CPI-M leaders' press conference. The Left party accused RSS activists of allegedly manhandling Yechury but the RSS has strongly denied the allegation.

“It is a matter of record that RSS does not support such anti-social elements, nor such undemocratic methods of subverting any lawful activity,” Vaidya said. He lashed out at the CPI (M) for allegedly targeting the RSS. 

“RSS also condemns the baseless attempt of CPI(M) to drag the Sangh's name in this incident…This only indicates that CPI(M) is scared and worried about the continuous and unabated growth and impact of RSS in India,” the Sangh spokesman said in a statement.

Seeking to turn the tables on the CPI (M), Vaidya charged that on the contrary  RSS activists had to face the ire of Left sponsored hooliganism in Kerala.
