Dadri lynching damaged NDA image

Incidents like the Dadri lynching “damage“ the NDA government's image and RSS has nothing to do with them, defence minister Manohar Parrikar has said. “These incidents damage the image of the NDA as well as the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It cannot be said to be the intention of the government,“ Parrikar said.
He was asked about the lynching of a man over a beef eating rumour in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh and whether such incidents were part of the RSS agenda to polarize society ahead of the Bihar polls. He was speaking at a fund-raising function in Bambolim on the outskirts of Panaji on Sunday . “Sometimes, local issues are blown out of proportion,“ he said, insisting that he was not referring to any particular incident.
Seeking to distance the RSS from the recent attacks in Uttar Pradesh, he said, “I have been a hardcore RSS functionary from my childhood. This (Dadri lynching) has nothing to do with RSS.“
