Rahul Gandhi has a knack of giving credit to the RSS, for anything that is happening in the country

24 May 2018

In respect to Sterlite Copper protests in Tamil Nadu Rahul Gandhi said “Tamilians are massacred as they are not budging to RSS ideologies”

On April 7, 2005, Sonia Gandhi led UPA directed Ministry of Environment & Forest to write to TNPCB (Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board), directing it to issue a license for Sterlite's expanded capacity in Tuticorin.

The Environmental Clearance for Sterlite Copper Plant from the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change was issued on January 1, 2009 by-passing the mandatory public hearing, when UPA was in power

Sterlite protests are the protests against a copper plant in Tuticorin. They were not protests against the RSS as claimed by Rahul Gandhi.
