Gorakhpur, October 16:
On the third and final day of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini Mandal (ABKM) Baitak here at Gorakhpur, RSS Sarakaryavah (General Secretary) Sri Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi shared Sangh opinions on various issues along with media persons. Dr Manmohan Vaidya, RSS Akhil Bharatiya Prachara Pramukh was present along with Bhaiyyaji.
Akhil Bhartiya Karyakari Mandal (All India Executive Committee) meeting
Shri Suresh (Bhaiyya Ji) Joshi, Sar Karyavah of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Sunday described the media in detail about an entire array of discussions and meetings held during the last three days of Akhil Bhartiya Karyakari Mandal (All India Executive Committee) at Gorakhpur. He said it has been our tradition to proceed on all courses of action only after due diligence and discussions. The meeting also analyzed several ongoing organizational activities of the RSS.
During the meetings there were elaborate discussions wherein it was deliberated upon how to take the thoughts and ideals of Swami Vivekananda to our mothers, sisters, intellectuals and others in our society. January 2013 would mark the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and Sangh would initiate a series of functions to mark his Jayanti.
Discussions also centered on the proposed Communal Violence Bill that would soon be introduced by the NAC (National Advisory Council).
The Communal Violence Bill will strike at the root of nation’s unity, weaken the social fabric of our country, widen the gulf between majority and minority communities and will endanger the integrity of our country. The said Bill would lead to distrust within the society and lead to divisions within scheduled castes and scheduled tribes of the Hindu community. The Communal Violence Bill will neither serve any purpose for the society nor for the country. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh will begin a country wide mass awareness campaign against this Bill.
Concerns were also raised about the rising pollution levels in the revered River Ganga. There were discussions about how to make the Ganga’s water clean and pollution free.
Bhaiyya Ji said that it is quite clear that the foreign forces would pose a grave security threat for our country in the near future. Specially, China’s growing influence with an eye on our country’s border and its increasing military presence on our borders testifies the fact that it has made elaborate plans to encircle our country. The strategists of our country should give serious thoughts to these issues and devise our own strategies accordingly.
China is building a massive infrastructure on its side of the Indo-China border. We expect the same from the government of Bharat that it builds requisite security infrastructure at Laddakh, Jammu & Kashmir and in Arunachal Pradesh. We demand that the government looks into this issue and implements a concrete plan of action. The morale of our armed forces is high, yet if due to lack of facilities it looks weak then it is a matter of grave concern for all of us.
We urge the government that it initiates action to ensure the nation’s security and secure our country’s border.
Responding to a question about Prashant Bhushan’s views on Kashmir, Bhaiyya Ji expressed surprise and said this is the language of separatists. He said under no circumstances can Jammu & Kashmir be ever separated from our country.
On the issue of participation by Sangh’s Swayamsevaks in the anti-corruption agitation by Shri Anna Hazare, he said that the Swayamsevaks participated in the movement as common people. Bhaiyya Ji added that it has been Sangh’s tradition that it does not feel necessary to take credit for any work done in the interests of the country.
We have no reservations for Shri Anna Ji, if at all he has reservations for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh then the question should be best answered by him. Responding to Shri Anna Hazare’s silent fast (a vow of silence) Bhaiyya ji said Shri Anna Ji usually keeps such fasts. Bhaiyya ji added that he has already given his views on Shri Anna Ji in a press statement issued yesterday.
On Shri L.K. Advani’s candidature for the post of Prime Minister, Bhaiyya Ji said there is quite some time for a decision. The said decision will ultimately rest with the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and the party will eventually decide when time is right.
Responding to a question on transparency wherein it was asked why are Sangh’s meeting held in discreet ways, Bhaiyya Ji said we are all available before the media with elaborate presentations of our discussions. Where is the question of maintaining secrecy about our meetings? he asked.
The press meet was also attended by Dr Manmohan Vaidya, the All India Prachar Pramukh of RSS.
ABKM which was began on Friday, after inauguration by Mohan Bhagwat, was concluded on Sunday evening. After many discussions on various issues, Sangh has passed a resolution on National Security.
RSS National level core team with representatives from each Pranth (state) will meet twice in a year, with a gap of 6 months. In last March Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) was held at Puttur of Karnataka, which was the Highest ORGANISATIONAL body of RSS.
