Ambala: Amid the controversy over former President Pranab Mukherjee’s decision to attend an RSS meet, Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij Wednesday said it should be mandatory for everyone to spend time with the organization.
“The RSS is a nationalist organization,” the minister tweeted in Hindi.
“It should be made mandatory for all people of the country to spend some time with the sangh. Many problems of the country will be solved,” he added.
The tweet, however, made no direct mention of Mukherjee’s decision to attend the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh event.
Vij has made controversial statements in the past against Mahatma Gandhi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
Recently, he compared Rahul Gandhi to the deadly Nipah virus, saying whoever comes in contact with him will be destroyed.
He had once demanded that the cow should be declared a national animal.
