‘Bharat Jodo’ is not possible by harboring hatred: RSS | India News


RAIPUR: Asserting that ‘Bharat Jodo’ is not possible by harboring hatred, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday said earlier generations of the Congress too fostered hatred and contempt for the Sangh.
“The Congress wants to connect people through hatred. Can you unite India through hatred? They have harbored hatred and contempt for us for a long time. Their baap-dada—earlier generations– too tried to stop the RSS but we kept growing as we were supported by the people,” RSS Sah Sarkaryawah Dr Manmohan Vaidya told reporters here after the three-day coordination committee meeting in Chhattisgarh capital.
The RSS remarks about Congress comes in the backdrop of Congress tweeting a picture of a burning pair of Khakhi shorts—a part of RSS uniform, saying “To free the country from shackles of hate and undo the damage done by BJP-RSS. Step by step, we will reach our goal” while referring to its Bharat Jodo Yatra.
To a query on Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY) undertaken by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Dr Vaidya said that it is always better to work for the unity of this country, but through which means it is always crucial. Is it being done through ‘Tiraskar or Prem’ (hatred or love)? He questioned. The elements that required uniting the nation must be identified first and then only efforts should be made, Vaidya said while commenting on Bharat Jodo yatra. The nation cannot be united through the means of ‘hatred’. Following the path of hatred will be a political gimmick, he said.
On Hindutva, Dr Vaidya said that Hindutva is not a religion. Spiritual identity of India is identified as Hindutva across the globe. “I feel a large number of people are connecting with Hindutva and it is growing in all states,” said Dr Vaidya.
Speaking on population control which has become a growing concern for the nation, Dr Vaidya said that the Sangh has already passed a proposal keeping an eye on the future of the nation in the next 50 years. “How many hands of youths this country will need in the next 50 years and other aspects are covered in the proposal? This nation needs a policy for a longer period for population control. I will advocate for a national population policy,” said Dr Vaidya.
More than 250 office bearers of 36 organizations working under the ideology of RSS were present in this meeting which was also attended by Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat and BJP president J P Nadda.
Speaking about the meeting, Dr Vaidya said that it was decided to work for positive changes in the country. He said that if there is study on Hindutva in the US and UK, then it should be done here too, which was also part of the discussions in the meeting.
Taking a dig at brand obsession taking toll of local employment, Vaidya said that the meeting brainstormed on the promotion of production at local level and redesigning of global market structure.
Agriculture graduates are not doing agriculture activities and those who do farming are not educated. So work on their education should be done.
Work in the court be done in local languages? in the courts across India and the judgment should be in local language so that people know what the lawyer and judges are saying.
To another query on Hindu Rashtra, Vaidya said that noble laureate Rabindranath Tagore used to say unity in diversity is the religion lying in the heart of India.
Dr Vaidya took a jibe at chief minister Bhupesh Baghel when asked about the chief minister’s invitation to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat to visit Mata Kaushalya Mandir at Chandkhuri. Dr Vaidya said that they had not received any invitation. When asked about the chief minister’s announcement in the media, Dr Vaidya questioned if an invitation is given in such a manner?
Before the start of the RSS meeting on September 10, Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel had said that the people of the Sangh are holding a meeting here. Mohan Bhagwat and his associates should go to see Gothan and Kaushalya Mata Mandir.
