RSS @ 90: Mohan Bhagwat praises Modi, calls for Unity in India

Mohan-Bhagwat-RSSNagpur, Oct 22: As RSS turned 90 years today, its chief Mohan Bhagwat said there is an atmosphere of hope and enthusiasm in the country after Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed office and that “unity in diversity in India’s strength”.

“India’s image in the world has improved. The situation in India has improved. There was an environment of disappointment two years ago, but now there is an atmosphere of hope and enthusiasm,” Bhagwat said here.

He praised Modi’s initiatives such as “Jhan Dhan Yojana”, and said that no one raised the topic of sustainable governance until two years ago. In his annual Dussehra address to Swayamasevaks, he also urged people to remain united.

“The core principle of making India a stronger nation is to ensure unity,” the chief of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ideological parent of Modi’s BJP, said. “We need unified rule for India’s benefit. Unity in diversity in India’s strength.”

Senior Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders such as union Minister Nitin Gadkari and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis were among those present at the event.

RSS-90Key Excerpts from Bhagwat’s Speech:

* A new idea of India is rising in the world. Whenever there’s a crisis situation in the world, we come forth to help.

* The era of despair and depression is over. There is a new hope and positive energy all over the country. As the expectations are high, questions are being asked too.

* The primary thing to think about is how to make India a leading nation in the world.

* Society, Govt and Administration need to work in synergy for a continual and long standing change for the nation.

* Making policy not enough, its important to look at the implementation and also feedback of the policy & its impact.

* Religion is not about worship. It teaches tolerance, control, restraint and mutual co-existence.

* Sangh does not support violence in any form. We condemn Dadri lynching and other casteist violence. There is no place for such hatred in Indian society.

* India must uphold its cultural values and lead the world by propagating those. The world accepts India as a trusted nation today.
