The Sangh has taken umbrage to the statement made by Gandhi at a rally in Maharashtra on Thursday.

While addressing the rally in Thane district, the Congress vice president had alleged that it was "RSS people" who had killed Mahatma Gandhi.

"RSS people killed Gandhiji and today their people (BJP) talk of him...They opposed Sardar Patel and Gandhiji," Rahul had said in his speech.
