Hitting out at the media over its perception of Yadav, given the allegations, the former MP from Bihar had faced of complicity in the murder of CPI-M leader Ajit Sarkar, he said that if they were against somebody accused of one murder, "then what about that conspiracy due to which thousands of people were killed in 2002?"
The Congress leader said that his fight with the BJP and RSS was an ideological one. "I cannot compromise on this, whether some government comes or goes. I will not allow those to be strengthened who spread social disharmony in the name of religion," he said.
Speaking on the occasion, LJP chief Ram Vilas Paswan said that BJP was just one of the wings of the "transmitter" called RSS. He also rued how, apart from in BJP and the Left, there was no ideological grooming in other parties unlike in the past.
