Hours after Congress, in its manifesto, promised to impose a complete ban on the youth wing of the Sangh-affiliated Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP)-- Bajrang Dal, BJP and the latter lambasted the latest announcement and called it a deliberate attempt to hamper peace and prosperity of the country. 

Comparing Bajrang Dal with the banned Islamic outfit Popular Front of India (PFI), the grand old party on Tuesday promised to impose similar restrictions on the right-wing group. According to Congress, Bajrang Dal promotes "enmity or hatred, whether among majority or minority communities".

Meanwhile, reacting to the latest announcement, Dr Surendra Jain, VHP, said called it "unfortunate" and added the country will not accept such promises. Also, Jain asserted that the group has accepted the challenge and added it will answer Congress through all democratic ways.

"Congress has released its manifesto today. The party has compared a patriotic organisation with the banned Islamist PFI group. This exposed how Congress has been doing politics in order to please a particular community," he said. 

Bajrang Dal used to obstruct expansion of "sir tan see judaa" gang

Calling Bajrang Dal a 'nationalist' party, Jain said the "proud" workers have been obstructing the expansion of "Islamist extremism". The VHP chief further claimed the right-wing organisation has been actively working to stop the "sir tan se judaa gang". 

"By its latest announcement, Congress leader Sonia Gandhi has exhibited his real face. But, don't worry. Every worker of Bajrang Dal has accepted the challenge and will fight with the Congress following all democratic principles," he added.  

PFI manifesto: Assam CM

Meanwhile, echoing the same, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma called the manifesto -- a vision document of PFI.

"PFI is already banned. Siddaramaiah government withdrew cases of PFI. So, they are saying that to appease Muslims, they will ban Bajrang Dal. Congress is saying that PFI can’t say that we will take revenge. Congress’ manifesto looks like the manifesto of PFI and fundamentalist Muslim organizations," said Sarma.
