New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party has hit the headlines for wrong reasons. The dancing of Opposition leader in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and other BJP leaders during the Satyagraha at Raj Ghat has irked RSS and the central leadership of the party.

The BJP had announced a 24-hour nationwide stir protesting against Baba Ramdev’s eviction from Ramlila ground during his agitation.

Comparing the forceful action of the police to Jallianwala Bagh, the central leadership of BJP sat on Satyagraha at Rajghat in New Delhi.

The Satyagraha began on Sunday evening. The BJP workers including Sushma Swaraj, BJP youth national president Anurag Thakur and BJP general secretary Vijay Goel danced to the tunes of patriotic songs to encourage the supporters at Rajghat.

All television channels flashed the scene following which the BJP received feedback from within and outside the party.

According to sources, members of RSS met BJP leaders and expressed their displeasure over this issue. Many leaders from BJP are reported to be uncomfortable with the incident.

Grabbing the chance to hit back the Opposition, the Congress pulls up the BJP for holding dance at Raj Ghat. BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain clarified and said the Congress leaders had danced on item songs while BJP leaders have danced on patriotic songs.

“Mahatma Gandhi is not personal property of Congress and we don’t have to take permission from 10 Janpath to stage any protest at Raj Ghat,” he said.
