New Delhi: CPI today attacked the government over Doordarshan's live telecast of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's Vijaydashmi address saying it was the misuse of the public broadcaster for saffron propaganda.  

Party MP D Raja said the government, specifically the Information and Broadcasting Ministry, should give an explanation to the people for allowing DD to be the mouthpiece for the RSS.

He said it was “a disquieting and distressing trend that the country's secular and democratic values were undermined by the government action.”
