Sonia terms Advani as RSS' slave

The UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Wednesdy made a sharp attack on BJP leader LK Advani when she called her a slave of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
The statement comes in wake of Advani's criticism of Manmohan Singh as a weak Prime Minister. Sonia said that Advani couldn't take a decision on his own and needs RSS' nod for every statement.

Reminding Advani about his remark terming MA Jinnah as a secular person, Sonia said that he had to leave the post of BJP's president after he made that pronouncement which the Sangh didn't approve of.

She said that the people knew who is a slave of RSS. Sonia was addressing a rally of the Congress in Bidar district in Karnataka. RSS is a right-wing Hindu organisation that has its headquarter in Nagpur.

Most of the BJP cadre comes from the Sangh. Advani has also been an RSS volunteer in the past. She mocked at the BJP's claims of fighting terrorism better than the Congress. Lately leaders of both parties have been trading charges against each other but this has been by far the strongest statement from Congress camp.
