During its second day of meeting at Agra, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, Nov 2, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat slammed Narendra Modi-led NDA government.
According to media report, Bhagwat, during a closed door meeting, asked RSS workers to adopt wait and watch policy while dealing with Modi government in Delhi. It seems that Bhagwat was upset with NDA government which, according to the RSS chief, was silent on its core issues.
The media report quoted Bhagwat as saying, "We are not getting the expected results. A section of people make unnecessary hue and cry over our statement that those living in Hindustan are Hindus."
We are not getting the expected results, says Bhagwat about NDA government
"They don't want to analyse our statement objectively. The leaders of the party in power should also have propagated this statement more effectively. But they are silent on this issue and trying to strike a balance. It will annoy the people in the long run," added Bhagwat.
However, the reports also quoted Bhagwat as saying that RSS still holds expectation from the Centre. Here it can be recalled that RSS recently had decided to handover its wish list to the union ministers for implementing the Sangh's agenda.
Bhagwat's statement came at a time when BJP dared Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan to ban RSS in Uttar Pradesh.BJP state President Laxmi Kant Bajpai had said, "It seems that Khan is losing his mental balance. He has his government in the state."
"If he has the guts, then he should ban RSS. Why is he telling the Centre? His party is in power in the state, then he should sign an order," Bajpai added while lashing out at Khan.
Bajpai was commenting on Khan's letter to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh regarding RSS. Terming RSS view that all citizens of the country were Hindus as against the basic spirit of the Constitution, Khan had on Oct 28 asked Rajnath Singh to take serious note of it.
Despite Bajpai's statement, it seems Mohan Bhagwat and other sangh leaders were upset with Modi government which is yet to make any official statement on the issue.
