The RSS today said the Trinamool Congress' decision to observe Ram Navami is a moral victory for the organisation as the ruling party had opposed the celebrations last year.
"Last year, we had seen how activists of various Hindutva organisations were arrested for observing Ram Navami in the state. It is good that they have realised their mistake," Basu said.
On the state government's directive against armed processions during Ram Navami, he said the RSS is against any armed procession, be it for Ram Navami or Muharram.
The state BJP leadership, however see the TMC's decision as an attempt to hijack the programme from the saffron party.
