Manmohan Vaidya said after the end of the coordination meeting
Raipur. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday targeted the Congress, saying that it wants to unite people through hatred. Along with this, he claimed that the previous generations of the Congress party also had hatred for the Sangh. RSS’s Saha Sarkaryavah Manmohan Vaidya apparently referred to the Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra as a “political gimmick” that would not fulfill its objective of uniting the masses. Vaidya, while addressing a press conference after the conclusion of the three-day All India Coordination meeting of the Sangh in Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur, claimed that the country’s oldest party hated the organization and tried to stop its development, but Even after this, the organization expanded with the support of the society.
The Congress on Monday tweeted a picture of khaki shorts on fire. It is noteworthy that till some time ago, Khaki Nikkar used to be the ‘dresscode’ of the RSS. Congress shared a picture of a fire in khaki shorts and wrote, ‘To free the country from the shackles of hatred and to compensate for the damage done by BJP-RSS. One by one, we will reach our goal. When asked about Congress’s tweet, Vaidya said, “If someone works to connect the people of India, it is a good thing, but how do you connect people.” – With hate or love? The spiritual identity of India is called Hindutva in the world. Hindutva is not a religion… If anyone tries to unite the country by identifying the element that truly connects people, then it is welcome.
Hate for us in their mind for a long time
“If you try to unite people through hatred, it will be like a political gimmick and will not serve the purpose of uniting people,” he said. He said the number of people joining the idea of Hindutva is “increasing”. Vaidya said, ‘Do you (Congress) want to associate people with hatred? For a long time he had hatred for us. Their previous generations (Bap-Dada) also humiliated the Sangh and tried their best to stop the Sangh and imposed restrictions twice. But the Sangh continued to grow because our principles are true. The Sangh continued to grow with the support of dedicated volunteers and society. He said, “This (tweet about picture of khaki shorts being on fire) also reflects their hatred. I don’t want to comment on this.”
How to take the issue of self-reliance forward
Giving information about the coordination meeting, Vaidya said that initiatives for self-reliant India were discussed with the Indian economic model. He said that on the occasion of Amrit Mahotsav (75 years) of India’s independence, all the organizations inspired by RSS discussed how to take forward the issue of self-reliance. He said that the issue of use of Indian languages in the functioning of the judiciary was also discussed. Regarding the expansion of the Sangh, he said that many youths have shown interest to join the organization through its website.
90,000 youth expressed willingness to join RSS
He said more than 1.25 lakh online applications were received between 2017 and 2021, while in the first eight months of this year (2022), around 90,000 youth expressed their desire to join the RSS. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Sarkaryavah (General Secretary) Dattatreya Hosabale and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda, among other leaders, attended the All India Coordination Meeting of the RSS. Altogether over 240 representatives from 36 organizations and various organizations inspired by the RSS participated in the meeting.
