Taking a swipe at the RSS, Congress on Saturday said the Sangh which was controlling the party from the remote earlier, is now doing it openly.
"Earlier, the RSS was behind the scenes and running the BJP through remote. Now it has come out of the shadows and trying to run the party openly," party spokesman Mohan Praksh said.
He was reacting to questions on the attempt of the RSS to find younger leaders in the BJP and the possibility of Nitin Gadkari taking over the post soon.
Praksh said the BJP required a surgery and it has been pointed out by their leaders.
"But now I have sympathy for the party as its treatment is being done by a veterinary doctor (RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat). I have sympathies for the party," he added.
