The Congress and the BJP today traded barbs over the killing of protestors in police firing in Tamil Nadu with the opposition party chief Rahul Gandhi blaming the RSS and the BJP for it and the saffron party dismissing his attack as an attempt to hide his "failures" following his party's poll losses. The BJP also hit out at Gandhi saying he was trying to "milk a sad incident for political mileage". In his tweets, Gandhi alleged that Tamils were being brutally killed for not bowing to the Sangh's ideology and blamed the "repressive Manuvadi thoughts" of the RSS and the BJP for beating up of Dalits in Gujarat. He also attached with his tweets a news channel's video clip purportedly showing Dalits being thrashed. "This soul-stirring video is a result of the Manuvadi thought. Before this disease spreads further in our country, we have to stop this. We will all together defeat this repressive thought of the BJP/RSS. It is time for change," he tweeted in Hindi. In another tweet, he alleged .

The Dalit face of the Congress in Karnataka and its state unit chief G Parameshwara has finally made it to the deputy chief minister's post, for which he has been a contender for too long.
