Shimla (Oct 8): Himachal Pradesh Youth Congress today condemned the action of Bharatiya Janata Party Yuva Morcha for burning effigies of Rahul Gandhi yesterday in some parts of the state. Justifying the statement made by Rahul Gandhi, office secretary of Youth Congress Mansingh Thakur here today said that statement by AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi was made in right context, which was later contorted by BJYM activists by giving communal colour to it. The Youth Congress also charged the state BJP government of creating communal environment in the state by letting such type of agitation.
Threatening to launch a protest against BJYM, the Youth Congress leader said that they would start a ‘battle’ against fundamentalist and Communalist forces in the state.
