Bengaluru: In the middle of 'Chaddi' row in Karnataka, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi slammed the Congress on Tuesday and said the "chaddi" of the latter has been "stripped" off by the people.  


"Because people have stripped their chaddis, they are burning RSS chaddi," said Joshi in Vijaypur.


He added, "Uttar Pradesh people have taken off their chaddis in front of the entire country. They have been stripped off in Uttar Pradesh, Assam and now their chaddis have loosened in Rajasthan with the party infighting of Pilot and others. In Chhattisgarh, it is loosened. In Madhya Pradesh, they have stripped off your chaddi. You have lost your chaddi everywhere."


The row started after some members National Students' Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress, burnt a pair of khaki shorts outside state education minister BC Nagesh's residence against the alleged "saffronisation" of school textbooks in the state. 


Former Chief Minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah questioned the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) over not including anyone from the minority community as a member of the Hindu organisation.

"I am telling you from the beginning that RSS is a non-secular organisation. Has a Dalit, OBC or a member from minority communities ever become Sarsanghchalak? What else can chaddis do? They do chaddi work only, chaddis do chaddi work," said Siddramaiah in Hubli.
