Tell RSS what’s wrong with its ideology: P Chidambaram to Pranab Mukherjee
Singhvi too subtly conveyed similar feelings. “It is superficial to presume unless what you have heard (Mukherjee’s speech). It is also important to keep in mind the 60 years’ legacy of the man (Mukherjee),” Singhvi said.
NEW DELHI: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram has publicly articulated what many party leaders have been hoping privately: That former President Pranab Mukherjee would criticise the RSS ideology when he visits the Sangh headquarters next week to address an even t.
“Now that he (Mukherjee) has accepted the (RSS) invitation, there is no point in debating about it. Sir, please go there (RSS headquarters) and tell them what is wrong with their ideology,” Chidambaram said in response to a question on the former President’s decision to accept the RSS invitation to be the chief guest at the event. Congress leader was participating in a panel discussion organised in connection with the release of his colleague Abhishek Manu Singhvi’s book, Straight Talk, a collection of his writings.
When asked the same question, Singhvi too subtly conveyed similar feelings. “It is superficial to presume unless what you have heard (Mukherjee’s speech). It is also important to keep in mind the 60 years’ legacy of the man (Mukherjee),” Singhvi said.
Singhvi’s book was released at a function where vice-president Venkaiah Naidu was the chief guest and former prime minister Manmohan Singh the guest of honour. Naidu lauded Singhvi’s co ntributions in Parliament, judiciary, politics and civil society and supported the Congress MP’s suggestions in his writings for more creative functioning of Parliament.

The ruling and opposition parties divide that increasingly manifests in our legislatures does not inspire confidence in the people. The ruling and opposition parties have specific responsibilities to discharge. While the governments and ruling parties of the day seek to push legislative proposals, the opposition is mandated with ensuring the best possible scrutiny. At the end of the day, the best possible legislations should follow which further the aspirations of the people,” Naidu said in his speech. Manmohan Singh, who wrote the foreword in Singhvi’s book, hailed his colleague’s intellectual contributions in multiple fields.
