Reacting sharply to Bhagwat's comments, Gandhi said that the RSS chief had insulted "every Indian" and all 'those who have died for our nation'.
Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat landed in a controversy on Monday morning over his recent comments that the RSS has the ability to prepare an "army" to fight for the country in 3 days, which would take the Army 6-7 months. "It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it".
Bhagwat said the RSS has the capacity to form an army within a few days to fight for the country.
Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is now in Bihar for 10 days, stirred a fresh controversy after he compared his organisation with the Indian Army. Talking about his force, Mohan Bhagwat said that Sang is more like a Parivarik Sangathan and is neither a military nor a para military organisation. In his tweet, Rahul said that Bhagwat's speech was an insult to every Indian as it disrespects those who had laid down their lives for the country.

Bhagwat, who is now on a ten-day tour of Bihar and meeting farmers and activists of various wings of his organisation, however, denied that RSS is a military outfit.
The RSS also attached a video of Mr Bhagwat's speech with its short statement. The RSS chief said this while addressing the workers at a zilla school ground on the last day of his six-day visit of Muzaffarpur.
To this effect, Vaidya added, the statement was not a comparison between the Indian army and the Sangh Swayamsevaks, but a comparison between general society and swayamsevaks, when given the opportunity to be trained by the Indian Army.
