Nagpur, Mar 23 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L K Advani has said that his roots lay in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP's ideologue.

"I have not forgotten this the whole of my life that all the responsibilities which I have held and all that I have done was on the basis of the education, traditions and blessings of the Sangh," Advani said, who attended the three-day conclave of the RSS here on Sunday.

Meanwhile, RSS questioned the delay in the death sentence for the December 13, 2001 Parliament attack accused Afzal Guru.

"Vote bank politics is not in the interest of the nation. Terrorism has to be wiped out, but the militant who is in custody is not being hanged, what is this?" asked Madandas Devi, RSS Joint General Secretary.

On March 21, the RSS elected a new chief. Mohan Bhagawat replaced K S Sudarsahan, who was holding the top post for almost nine years.

The RSS aims to transform India's secular society and establish the supremacy of a Hindu majority. (ANI)
