After Pranab Mukherjee's morphed photo with folded hands during RSS prayer went viral yesterday, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) today said that 'frustrated forces' are using 'dirty tricks' to defame the Sangh.

"Some divisive political forces posted a morphed photo of former President of Bharat Dr Pranab Mukherjee standing in a prayer position with folded hand during the recitation of Sangh Prarthana at yesterday's RSS function at Nagpur, said the RSS in a statement issued today.

The RSS alleged that when these forces failed to stop Mukherjee from attending the function, they are now using dirty tricks to defame the organisation.

"These forces initially tried to create an opposition to make Dr Mukherjee refrain from attending this function. And now these frustrated forces are doing all such dirty tricks to defame RSS," the statement added.

It also said that the organisation denounces and condemns these tricks used to malign their image.

"We denounce and strongly condemn such dirty tricks by these divisive political forces to deliberately defame RSS," said the statement.

Pranab Mukherjee yesterday attended RSS' 'Tritiya Varsh' event in Nagpur and even gave a speech which received accolade from many quarters. However, even before he started his speech, Mukherjee's morphed picture in RSS prayer position went viral on the social media.

Opposition parties, specially Congress had vocally criticised Pranab Mukherjee for attending the RSS event.

Congress also took to Twitter sharing the morphed picture accusing Sangh of disseminating the morphed picture.
