Blaming the Congress for spreading the propaganda that Nathuram Godse acted on the behest of Rashtriya Swayam sevak Sangh, its party chief on Friday reiterated that his party had no role in the killing of Mahatma Gandhi.

"It is the old practice of the Congress party and its leaders to defame RSS for achieving political mileage, a practice which is still continuing.

RSS had no hand in the murderer of Mahatma Gandhi," RSS Chief KC Sudershan said while addressing a gathering at Jagadhri in Yamunanagar.

He also blamed the then policies of the Congress as "weak" and the reason behind the split of the Indian mainland.

The 'Quit India' movement of 1942 led by Mahatma Gandhi was a failure due to non-planning of the movement. Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru had to admit that China has 'deceived' India when the 'friendly' country occupied Tibet during its invasion in 1962, he accused.

Claiming that Tibet was an Indian territory, Sudershan said that it has not mentioned anywhere in the history of China that Tibet is its part.
