Kozhikkode, April 8: There is a new entrant to the campaign fray - Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS, which had been staying away from campaigning since 1977, is now actively endorsing Narendra Modi for PM post.

In Kerala, RSS is calling for a change of guard at the Centre, which 'has compromised on national security', among other things, said a Times of India report.

Modus operandi

The right-wing organisation has formed squads in the state to ensure that all members cast their votes. One RSS worker has been given charge of 50 voters and he will personally monitor the voting on April 10.

"The Sangh cadres will check at 10am itself to see those who have not voted. They will be contacted by our workers personally or over phone," P Gopalankutty, prantha karyavahak of the RSS told TOI.

Reportedly, the organisation has enrolled 80,000 new voters this time. "We have also exhorted the people not to shy away from casting votes. Many feel voting is an exercise in futility. We want people to bring about change by casting their votes," Gopalankutty said.

The RSS is not organising meetings, conventions or processions, but doing a door-to-door canvassing for Modi.

"Our work is confined to door-to-door canvassing of votes for Narendra Modi. Though it cannot be construed as a pro-BJP stand, we have found out that there are many people in the CPM and Congress who are inclined towards Modi. We could make entry into areas which were hostile towards us in the past,"Gopalankutty said.

Why Modi?

The country is passing through a critical phase and it needs a leader like Modi, who has an incredible fighting spirit, said RSS leader.

"Our national security is in danger. The government has failed to act even when our soldiers were beheaded by the Pakistan army. Modi has proved that he was an efficient ruler even in the face of strong criticism from his rivals," he said.
