Parliamentarian Ravindra Kushwaha has dubbed RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat as the “god of BJP”, stating that the 68-year-old leader – like Lord Krishna on his chariot – was waging a pitched battle to rid the country of corruption.

“The BJP is a branch of the RSS, and the RSS chief is the god of the BJP. Like Lord Krishna on his chariot, he is fighting to eliminate corruption from the country,” Kushwaha, who represents the Salempur parliamentary constituency in the Lok Sabha, told mediapersons at Bilthara Road in Ballia district on Monday.

Kushwaha said Muslims who believe in nationalism can also be counted as Hindus as per the tenets handed down by RSS founders. He then went on to list a number of schemes that would be implemented to ensure the region’s development.
