Country’s unity only concern: RSS

via PNS | Lucknow published on January 10, 2010

Claiming that the Sangh Pariwar had never been concerned about the vote politics, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Sunday that the organisation was involved neither in the selection of BJP national president nor party’s internal politics.

“The RSS is only concerned about the unity and integrity of the country through nationalist approach,” the sarsanghachalak said while appealing to the youth and others to join the RSS to serve the nation.

Addressing the RSS cadre and the public at the RSS state headquarters during his visit to the State capital on Sunday, Bhagwat said that RSS was a non-political organisation. “The media reports that I have influenced the appointment of the BJP national president as we both belong to same city are also baseless’’, he said.

Focusing his speech on the openness of the RSS and dispelling the myth over the activities of the organisation, Bhagwat said: “Though we don’t do politics, we openly comment on the national issues and the ideologies concerning the welfare of the people’’.

“Our doors are open for everyone and anyone can join us and leave us anytime,” he added. The RSS chief, in his speech, particularly made it clear that everyone should join the organisation and take part in the endeavour to strengthen “our nationalist approach.’’

Advocating a strong case for Hinduism, Bhagwat said the problems the country was facing today could be tackled only if the country was united on religious lines.

“There are attack on us from all quarters — be it in Australia or the terrorist attacks sponsored by neighbouring countries — we are the sufferer because our society is still divided on caste lines,” he said and added that the government failed to take up those issues at international level forcefully because Hindus were weak.

Hinduism was the only solution to all those problems, the RSS chief stressed. “The Indian culture is nothing but the culture of Hindutava and every one living in this country is a Hindu. Their (Hindus) unity is of paramount importance to keep the country strong,” he said.

He also appealed to the youth to join the Sangh so that they could understand this organisation from a close quarter.

Despite the cold wave sweeping the state capital, senior BJP leaders including Lalji Tandon and Kalraj Mishra (both MP), state BJP president Rampati Ram Tripathi along with several other senior BJP leaders were seen in the RSS uniform.
