Jaipur, Oct 27 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Mohan Bhagwat today said that the Bharatiya Janata Party needs a complete overhaul to improve its image and performance at the national level.
Bhagwat said this while addressing a gathering of the RSS at Jaipur on Tuesday. The latest remarks have come from the RSS, the parent ideologue of the BJP, after the latter has been routed in all three state assembly elections.
"As far as the BJP is concerned, I don't know what medicine, surgery or chemotherapy they need. They themselves have to diagnose it. If they being a volunteer of RSS need any help in their organisation, we are happy to do it," Bhagwat said.
"And even if some other party wants our help for a good cause we are ready to do that. But we don't want to enter politics and takeover in politics. We are deliberately keeping out of it because we have to build society. Today, who so ever enters politics has to see things by breaking up society. We are not going to do that," he added.
Meanwhile, in New Delhi, BJP president Rajnath Singh termed the RSS chief's remarks as crazy and one short of eccentric.
"Our morals are high. (Q: Some one has said that your party needs a surgery.) Who has said this? Whosoever said this has gone mental," said Rajnath Singh.
BJP has been termed as the party of history by some of its rivals including Congress party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi who opined that the party is in wilderness with no vision to attract the masses as well as the classes. (ANI)
