The news regarding Shri K C Kannan, former Pracharak and Sah-sarkaryavah of RSS, appeared in a section of media attributing fishy and scandalous reasons for relieving him is totally unfounded and smacks of malicious intentions.
Shri K C Kannan has been relieved- not removed- from the responsibility of Sah-Sarkaryavah (Joint Gen Secretary) of RSS following his request to this effect. He was not keeping good health and had to be hospitalized a couple of times last year. He had conveyed to Sarsanghachalak and Sarkaryavah in Nov 2013 his inability to continue as pracharak and discharge the responsibility and requested that he may be permitted to take up his personal life. Accordingly, Sarkaryavah Shri Bhayyaji Joshi announced the same in the ABPS meeting just concluded in Bangalore.
However, it seems that some vested interests are deliberately trying to tarnish the image of RSS by spreading canards. RSS strongly deplores these attempts. It is Pracharak’s personal decision to work as pracharak till one wishes. There are ample examples of karyakartas serving as Pracharaks for long periods and taking to personal life of family and profession, and continuing to work in different walks of social life including RSS as a karyakarta.
I appeal to media not to indulge in sensationalizing the issue on baseless information.
