Nagpur: Continuing the aggressive stance against ousted Goa unit sanghchalak Subhash Velingkar , the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Friday virtually shot down his proposal to have an independent unit reporting directly to Nagpur. “Goa unit will remain part of Konkan ‘prant’ (division). Its new office-bearers will be announced soon,” said prachar pramukh Manmohan Vaidya in a tweet.Vaidya and other top brass of the RSS were hopeful that a sizeable number of swayamsevaks, who rallied behind Velingkar and resigned from their posts, would return to the ‘Sangh karya.’ “There is no place for ‘vyakti nishtha,’ (personal loyalty) and nothing can be above ‘Sangh nishtha’ (RSS work),” said Vaidya.
“Let things calm down. On our part, we will continue dialogue with them,” Vaidya added. He insisted that Velingkar was relieved from the post after he announced his decision to a form a political party.A revolt in the much-disciplined RSS is unheard of and no one here believes that Velingkar would be able to pull it off.
