NEW DELHI: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Friday said former president and Congress veteran Pranab Mukherjee’s visit to RSS headquarters signaled the end of the Grand Old party.
“Congress is finished. A man who spent 50 years in Congress and was President of India visited RSS headquarters. Do you still have hopes from this party?” said Owaisi at an event in Hyderabad.
The Lok Sabha member further said there was a need to think of an alternate to the BJP, other than the Congress, and endorsed a third political front led by regional parties.
Mukherjee’s decision to attend the RSS event had triggered a political slugfest with several Congress leaders expressing their disapproval and attempting to dissuade him from going to the event.
