Rampur: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Sunday demanded imposition of a complete ban on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), urging the NDA-led Centre to label it as a terrorist organisation.

The outfit (RSS) is busy in implementing its agenda of creating hatred among communities. They are trying to create similar circumstances in the country that led to the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, he told reporters here.

The Uttar Pradesh minister noted that the RSS should be banned, as was done by the Nehru government after Mahatma Gandhi's assassination. Hitting out at the Modi government, Khan said that the Centre was hell bent upon unleashing fringe elements in the society after they lost power in Delhi and Bihar.

After losing Delhi and Bihar electoral battles, the saffron outfits are contemplating that it can recapture its lost citadels only by playing hate politics, he said.
