The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) condemns the decision of Doordarshan to telecast live the speech of the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami. The RSS uses the occasion to propagate its Hindutva ideology.
The national public broadcaster had no business to telecast live the speech of the Chief of an organisation like the RSS. Such an action shows how the public broadcaster is being misused by the Modi government.
