Left minded terrorism a threat to nation: RSS


Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has said that Left minded terrorism is a threat to the country’s unity and integrity and termed that parties promoting ‘Yakub and Afzal panthis’ should be identified so that people could see their real faces. “There are two types of Leftists – one a nationalist and the other is anti-nationalists and the latter have the majority and were responsible for the Rohit Vemula and JNU cases,” said RSS chief of Awadh Pranth (UP), Prabhu Narain Srivastava in Lucknow on Tuesday.

Talking to the media on his return from Nagaur in Rajasthan after attending a meeting of `Pratinidhi Sabha’ (national body of the RSS), Srivastava said that the country have to fight against terrorists and the Leftists of anti-nationalist mindset, as both are promoting divisive forces in the country. Terming the statement of All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi that he won’t chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’, the RSS leader said,that such people were promoting the Afzal panthis and there is no need to make any comment on them.

In an obvious dig at the Congress, the RSS leader said, “A national party which prides itself for winning independence for the country from British Raaj, is now so desperate to stay relevant in national politics that it has stooped down to the level of supporting anti nationals like Yakub.”

Srivastava said that the RSS will do whatever is needed for maintaining and strengthening social harmony in the country and was ready to seek help from any one for this. “We are ready to take help from all political parties including the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and others so that they can help in maintaining social harmony in India,” said the RSS leader.

On the change in RSS uniform, Srivastava said that the change has been approved a couple of days back and it will take time when everyone will wear full pants during Shakhas and other programmes of the organisation.

“We had been discussion on the change of dress code for the last five years and the change has been accepted after much delibertions,” he stated.

When asked whether Dattatreya Hosabale transfer to UP from Bihar has anything to do with the state Assembly polls next year, the leader said that the transfer was a regular phenomenon in the outfit and it had nothing to do with polls.

“Hosabale will tour all parts of the country and only his base would be in Lucknow,” he informed.

The RSS leader also supported the reservation policy in the country saying that the poor still need reservation. The RSS leader claimed that during the last one year the number of Shakhas increased by 200 and in the Awadh Region and presently there were 1,114 Shakhas.
