Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 16 (ANI): Senior CPI (M) leader, Sitaram Yechury, came down heavily upon PM Narendra Modi’s Independence Day address to the nation and referred to the speech as completely disjointed from reality. Yechury also said that the speech was very high on rhetoric. Referring to Modi’s call to end communal and caste violence, Yechury wondered if the PM was addressing the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Critics say the BJP is the political offspring of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and has a deep-seated bias against India's 160 million Muslims. The party denies the charges and says it is opposed to the appeasement of any group. Harping on that sentiment, Yechury said RSS is very active in its pursuit of divisive politics, which is a major cause of communal tension.
