The ruling Congress in Meghalaya on Saturday charged Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) with distributing hate pamphlets ahead of the 16 May Tura Lok Sabha by-election.
The pamphlet has allegedly warned people to either convert or else leave Hindurashtra soon apart from declaring that Christianity will be erased by 2021.
The Congress, which has condemned this, has also lodged a complaint with the Chief Election Commissioner in Delhi demanding an immediate probe into the matter.
‘These anti-social elements are terrorising the general voters of the constituency by disturbing the hate pamphlets across the 2-Tura (ST) Parliamentary Constituency. There is a strong apprehension that these anti-social elements will cause disturbance and chaotic situation in elections,’ the state Congress said in a statement.
Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said the groups were trying to spread communal disharmony to hamper the on-going by-polls and urged the electorate to not get disconcerted and maintain peace and harmony.
The Returning Officer has directed West Garo Hills district SP Mukesh Singh to file an FIR against unknown miscreants involved in the act.
